The weather is a measure of how much the world needs to understand the difference between man and God.
The nation and the entire world have witnessed the flux between sunshine and storms. Yet, the sunshine has failed to impress upon mankind their need for gratitude when the storms of life appear on the horizon. We know how much mankind has missed when they compare their own failings to God and want to come out on top.
Then with all the fury of the winds and waters which come and overtake the land masses where mankind makes their home also comes the reminders that no one on this earth is ever strong enough to hold back the floods or calm the howling winds when they start to fall upon the earth.
What am I saying?
So much of what we are experiencing as a nation has to do with the fact that manmade education has ill served so many who have benefited from it. Their minds have become stunted in the throes of growth at the point where they can no longer look beyond themselves.
Be that as it may ---
At sometime or another they do come to a realization that all the time they spent trying to be immortal and falsely believing they have discovered within themselves the secret to longevity, their pointed versions of life fall apart when they realize they have come to the end of their breath and no doctor or medication on earth is able to prolong their days.
Perhaps if we had made a point of teaching that man needs God in every area of life, then we would be less likely to have to live among people who throw their own lives into the utter depths of Hell and won't stop until they take the entire world with them.
Preachers who know the Lord are preaching His word; but in these times in which we live, there is little regard for God.
Think about it.
