The second decade of the 21st century has begun and it’s easy to play off the number “2020.” For most of my life my vision was 20/800, corrected only by contact lenses. Since having cataract surgery, I can see “20/20” without help.
I’m also trying to spiritually glimpse what is in store for the planet in 2020 and beyond, and will do my best today to share what I “see.”
Here’s my view of the world in the year of our Lord 2020.
As impeachment-mania rages in the mainstream media in the United States, and as President Trump counter punches Joe and Hunter Biden with allegations of nepotistic corruption in Ukraine and China, I hear some voices in the background.
They are extremely agitated, cunning, reckless, and running scared.
There are other voices I long to hear, but in today’s column I will focus on the background wails that seem to be rising in the United States and all over the world.
I hear a cry of desperation.
We humans have a penchant for imbalance–in many areas of our lives.
We put on weight, we lose it. We discipline our kids “by the book” as young parents and spoil rotten our grandchildren. We huff and puff about the importance of telling the truth, then succumb to crafting little white lies.
We do the same thing with the Good News of Jesus Christ. On one hand we know that God hates sin–and we should also. But other times we lavish grace and forget about right and wrong.
On February 23, 2019 God gave the United States a lesson in the balance and wholeness of the Good News.
We saw the complete gospel on one special day.
