Following God’s call

Today, I am faced with a deadline to write my column. Watching the news about Robin Williams, the people of Iraq stranded on a hillside because of persecution, Ebola victims dying, riots and vandalism over the death of a young man and violent weather causing destruction, I wonder what news will be in the headlines when this column is printed? I wonder what news of today will already be forgotten?

When the clothes in the washing machine are unevenly balanced, the machine will shake, rattle and make all kinds of noise. When your automobile tires are severely out of balance, the steering wheel will shake, eventually wearing out the tire tread. As proper balancing is required in some things of life, in much the same way, we need balance in our spiritual lives to survive.

'You’ve Got to Be Carefully Taught'

Sometimes truth crops up in the strangest places. I mean, you wouldn’t expect to find, amidst the frothy lightness of such songs as “We Ain’t Got Dames,” “I’m Gonna Wash that Man Right Outta My Hair” and “Honeybun,” the profound truth that prejudice is bred in us, not born in us. Yet, there it is, right in the middle of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s South Pacific.

Pursue your purpose

Recently I begin to really wonder and meditate on what my purpose and existence in the earth realm was. I mean, why was I born? It is a question I’m sure many of us have pondered.
