Life in this topsy turvy world
I wish the good people I know had all the great successes in life. And I wish the people who thumb their noses at God were the most miserable failures in the world. Yeah, I said it. (And on the Rhyme and Reason Podcast I’ll say it out loud) But since I don’t get to rule the whole world, I don’t get to decide how that works. And since God also isn’t currently ruling this world (Gasp!) life is very topsy turvy.
It’s so annoying to see the foul-mouthed, obnoxious types gain huge audiences and build “businesses”. And then watch as awesome, caring, intelligent types struggle to build an audience. In spite of the fact they provide much needed products and services. And serve others respectfully and professionally.
Why is the world so topsy turvy?
Is it the culture? Education opportunities? Genetic predisposition? Nay. Nay. And nay nay. If it were only something like those problems, the upside down condition of life here on Earth could surely be solved with some of our millions of laws.
And yet, there are so-called “leaders” in government who go by the title of “lawmakers”. And they continuously devise “laws” in an attempt to make the masses play nice. But the masses don’t even seem to know what nice is anymore. Much less play nice. So, we end up with a “survival of the fittest” world where bad is good and good is bad.
Of course, none of that depressing news means good, hard-working, God-fearing people should lose heart. Quite the contrary. In fact, when you fit into that category, you’ve already won. You’ve won what’s truly important anyway. And that’s the eternal rewards. Every other kind of win, here on Earth, is so temporary. But acknowledging there’s a God…and that you’re not Him…and the Way He made for you…puts the everlasting mark in your W column.
So, I wanna encourage all my Christian friends today.
And I want you to remember, and never forget, you’re a winner. Because you’re able to make awesome decisions. Don’t let any setbacks define you. Remember, they’re temporary. But you’re eternal.
Life is very temporary
Here on planet Earth.
If you ponder why you wander,
Or what it’s all worth,
Don’t be bitter, just consider
Life is often rough and tough.
But still…you got to live.
And this is another key example of how life has Rhyme and Reason because God made you.
