It’s hard not to fall into the mindset that things aren't that bad, things will get better over time, people aren’t so blinded as to let thousands of babies be slaughtered worldwide every day.......
We have to change the mindset, the one we may not even realize we have. Just because things have been so for long period of time, doesn’t mean they are right. Put like that it seems obvious, okay, yeah, so why haven’t we changed things yet?
Why do we stand for the immorality? Why don’t we elect officials who will help change the evils in our society? Why do we let the corruption in our government go unchecked?
Why? Why? Why? We could fill the world with why’s, but it will never stop until we DO. Stop with the ‘whys’ and get off the couch and DO!
Do you want to know the reasons why I write this blog? Why I do what I do? What gives me the spark to write every day, even when the crowd I write to is small statistically?
I’m fed up with the lack of common sense, I’m tired of not seeing the right kind of change in society, and I cannot stand those of my generation who think they are entitled to everything, that because they doubt something it’s false.
And to continue with that point, if we don’t realize that these millennials of my generation are going to be taking the places of all those in society right now and that they will be the next politicians, the next CEO's the next artists, the next speakers, the next writers, with the mindset they have now things are looking scary.
If you don’t agree that things are looking bleak on many levels of our society, our whole world, really, then just step outside and listen.
I’m trying to encourage, inform, teach, anything to help. I’m trying to DO.
What I tell myself is that the same peers of mine who think that just because someone doesn’t agree with them is cause to harass, name call, riot, burn, destroy, they will be running our country one day. What am I doing to make sure they actually grow up to be better able to fulfill that role? What am I doing to make sure I’m grown up enough to help them grow up?
We don’t have the luxury to sit back and watch anymore. If we don’t DO there will be nothing left for us to protect.
“This is just the way things are” isn’t good enough. On average 1,764,000 babies dying every year isn’t good enough. Divorce being around 50% isn’t good enough. On average a violent crime being committed every 26.3 seconds isn’t good enough!
We need to understand that every prayer, every sacrifice, matters. It matters so much. Our DOing, matters more than the Devil cares to admit, which is why he tries so vehemently to distract us, lead us away from God, make us despair.
I’m pleading with you. Start DOing, please. I need your help.
God bless. Zac.
