IN CRISIS

We are in the midst of crisis! “What type of crisis?” you ask. You name the area, we’ve got crisis in that area.

War
People of another religion are trying to kill me
The Economy
Moral Decay
Young People won’t listen
Middle Aged People think they know it all
Politics
Pulpits
Marriage
Singleness
The Environment
The earth is heating up
The earth is cooling down
There’s too much rain
There’s not enough rain
Libidos have cooled off
Something isn’t right in the ocean (there’s oil in it now)
My joints need oil
The Government is meddling too much
The Government isn’t doing enough
The Government is sending my sons off to war
The Government is spending too much
The checking account is overdrawn
Human Rights
Animal Rights
Civil Rights
Women’s Rights
Gay Rights
The Left is crazy
Too many people want more rights
The Right is crazy
Too many people need more rights
Expenses are too high
Corporate values are too low
The Rich are greedy say the poor
The Poor are lazy say the rich
There are too many gays
There are too few good men
Health care is in trouble
Social Security is in trouble
The apocalypse may be near
The apocalypse may not be near
Immigrants are my biggest problem says Americans
Immigrants are my biggest problem says Native Americans
The neighbors are a problem
The neighbor’s dog is a problem
The neighbor’s kids are a problem
I think my spouse is having an affair with the neighbor
And Mother Nature is mad

Plus… I’m having a bad hair day!

So when is this crisis? You name the time. Any year, any decade, any century, just substitute the details. And you will find the crisis almost identical.

Crisis is common and is here is stay in one or several forms. Crisis will never end. If your peace depends on lack of crisis, and peace in the world, you’ll never be at peace.

Find peace in the words of Jesus:

“So then, do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Today has enough trouble of its own.” (Matthew 6:34)

“I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33)
