On a construction site, the workers had just placed explosives for a large explosion where
a rock ledge had to be removed for the road construction. Danger signs were everywhere
so workers thought there was no danger, but just after the fuse was lit, a little girl came
running up to check things out. The workers began yelling, to warn her away, but instead
she ran away from their warning voices. Fortunately, in a moment the mother came and
sensing the danger to anyone who might try to save her, the mother knelt down, and said,
"Come quickly to mommy, I want to hold you in my arms."
Are you paying attention? Or are you paying attention to the wrong stuff? A voice that sounds a lot like Wisdom as we met her in Proverbs begs us to learn from past experience, so as not to spend money when we can get free stuff. The first generation liberated from Egypt died in the desert because they didn’t learn. And when the people pointed with oohs and ahhs towards current events, Jesus asked them to learn from the past to recognize that some things are not as significant as the eternal choices.
The government has finally woken up to the fact that the health of our children in this country is threatened by their food. For two generations, since World War II, food has become increasingly processed and the era of the fast food meal is well and truly with us.
Karen hates church. She feels it's a place where people are brainwashed. She thinks the people who go to church are weak, looking for a crutch in sermons that tell them how to behave. Karen clearly has an issue with established religion.
