I hear that it is always a blessing to see another year. However, I would like to add that it may not be a blessing for anyone other than to ourselves if we are NOT doing what we can to also enrich the lives of others. Time is much too precious and far too short to waste it on trying to figure out which perfume is the the sweetest, which fashion is the latest, and which vehicle is the most prestigious.
Truly, life has to be more than just the accumulation of stuff and the over-indulgence in self-gratification. As I sit and write these very words of truth, there is a child somewhere fighting for their life while someone else is arguing at a fast food cashier for not putting ketchup on their burger. While a family of five have been evicted from their home, a clerk at a bowling alley is being cussed out by a patron whose bowling lane wasn't turned on fast enough. While someone else just found out that they have terminal cancer, someone at a nearby church is fighting over a parking space.
I could go on and on about the husbands and wives that constantly bicker over which one left the top off of a $2.00 tube of toothpaste or the inlaws that hate the son-in-law or daughter in-law after fifteen years of marriage and three grandchildren later. Without much effort we always can find something worthless to fight about.
For 2011 how about seeking something worth while to care about. With this new attitude I'm sure it won't take long before we find someone who could benefit from an extra smile, a hug, or a helping hand that only you can deliver. Let's think a lot bigger this year and let's not look for change but rather let's be the change.
Happy New Year from the team at Yahshua University.
Perhaps, this year, you and I may bump into each other at a hospital, a jail or a shelter as we visit someone in need.
End Time Oracle,
