- "It's a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World"
Date: October 2, 2017
So now I'm really dating myself! Please tell me I'm not the only one who remembers that hilarious film that starred many of the greatest of all time, everyone from Spencer Tracy to Buster Keaton. It's the highly comedic story of a not-so-comedic reality - the lengths people will go to for greed. I can remember seeing it in the theater as a kid and laughing so hard. To this day it's one of the few films that, if it comes on TCM or something, I'll drop everything and watch. Great writing, great actors, great fun! But now every day we seem to live in a world that grows more and more "mad, mad, mad." Anger, hostility, confusion, and the annihilation of what's clearly right for what's clearly wrong. From where I sit, my country is fast hurdling toward a mob-ocracy. May it not be so. May I be proven very wrong. But there can be no question from any side of any fence that our world is increasingly "gone mad." And you and I, child of God, are its only hope. Because it all stems from one heart-rending reality: "people need the Lord." And our position through it all so massively needs to be "on our knees," crying out to Him. Then reaching out with His love and salvation. People will put their swords down - as His Spirit overtakes their hearts. It's up to you and me, beloved bro/sis. Let us march forward...on our knees!
