Where do We stand?

Where have our values of today gone?  What runs our society?  Is it just mass amounts of green bills with money signs, or do we still stand for more than the quick buck?  As I met with a man just this morning, he brought concerns of how the world has lost all good intentions...He stress how all people will fall if enough money or a pretty figure is offered to them.

As I listen to the man I felt sorrow for him.  In his eyes he has lost hope in the world around him.  The thought striked deep, is this hopeless view overtaking our views on life?  How can we fight back?  Where can we find hope and happiness which seems to be long forgotten?

I realized the man had maked a good point; I feel though we can not just lay down and lose this fight.  I don't know if it was my own ego or just a child-like desire to find happiness.  I asked "how can we find the values" in somewhat of a plee hoping to see there was still a chance....

We have forgotten God.  That is where our world is falling short, we feel the quick fix is happiness, instead of the long haul happiness which God can bring us.  When we all take a stand in our own lives the happiness and high standards will begin to show their faces.  Our world is not a lost hope, but just in a testing state, which we have to to stand up and continue to fight.

No one will win this battle expect for each one of us.  Lets all take a stand for our values.  Bring back the hope and values which we all need.  Find the happiness waiting for us all, which can not be find by an amount of dollar bills.

"These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world."

Follow Christ's invitation to find HAPPINESS!


  1. There is a lot wrong in the world. But, there is a lot of good too. Thank you for the reminder to find the good. Find happiness.

  2. I second Sister Nestman's comment! the only place we can find true and LASTING happiness is through Jesus Christ.

  3. Awesome post!!! Reminds me of a verse I read this morning: "But before ye seek for riches, seek ye for the kingdom of God." (Jacob 2:18)
