Futility

Statistically 250,000 - 300,000 people died today. Their stories ended.

Somewhere out there children of untold number were either beaten, sold into prostitution or experienced starvation today.

People all over the world wondered today if there is any purpose or meaning in living.

Spiritual battles were fought in this great controversy today.

And I...I worked on a computer class. I sweat over mowing the lawn. I sat here and wrote a blog. That's what I did today.

The seeming futility of it all is nearly overpowering. Yet, waiting on the Lord is never futile. Even so, if I fail to have a heart for the sufferings of the world now I have failed in much. God forbid that I become a casual observer of a chaotic earth that is falling apart.

I need a heart that is broken by those things that break the heart of God.

Mmmm...
There are far too many places where the flag of Zion does not fly. We owe the world...
