Worry About Yourself
Why is it so hard in this age of electronics where we are constantly bombarded with information sprinkled with bits and pieces of misinformation?
There are those who want to control what we are allowed to eat, say or think. They see themselves as possessing superior knowledge about what is good for the rest of us.
We are told that we must divest ourselves of all foreign influence. We must buy and use only products, goods and services made in America. While pride in our country, work and how well we do is strictly discouraged.
I’m reminded of a parachutist who puts his life in the hands of complete strangers, “assuming” they know what they’re doing. The same is true of passengers in cars, trucks, buses, airplanes and trains.
It seems that doctors and lawyers are always practicing to earn and maintain their professional licenses , while everyone else is simply winging it.
The Bible tells us that in the last days we will hear of wars and rumors of wars but the internet gives us the false impression that we can control the entire world as we know it.
I’ve come to the conclusion after consulting with some very smart people that the world would be a much better place if we got back to worrying about our own darn selves.
Do what you can do about what you can do and leave everything else to someone else. The Bible tells us that when it is within our power, live at peace with one another.
To put it another way, love your neighbor as you love yourself. Don’t anchor your love boat in a harbor of hate. – RTM
