God’s Hope After Human Failure
Many people’s hopes were dashed by the midterms–including me.
Let’s leave those doldrums behind this week to glimpse God’s redeeming power in a person’s life.
God can bring hope after failure to nations also.
Revive Your Conscience: A Tribute to Joy Dawson
We have spent some weeks describing the immense problem of decay of conscience in American culture and other nations. I believe pastors and Christian leaders are primarily responsible for dimming the lights of God’s love and truth in today’s world.
Last week we looked at the role that the media plays in exploiting the “dull lighting” with a firehose of darkness–from the Internet, to our cell phones, television, videos, and even the music play lists we frequent.
It’s easy to point fingers at pastors and media giants–but we must not start there.
Conscience decay begins with you and me.
Right now I’m dealing with some situations that require wisdom.
One involves an individual where advice is crucial. Another may impact the future of a 140-year old organization. A third relates to a book project. And the last one is what I will eat for dinner so I can keep losing a few pounds.
Just kidding on the last one.
But maybe not. We desperately need wisdom in every area of life–especially the big ones.
