Hello all. Your "friendly neighborhood" author back with some more words of encouragement and enlightenment for your summertime parusal. While working with Doordash, as my "side hustle" I thought about a few things that made my life a little bit easier and clearer at the time. One of these was that there are actually two golden rules: He who has the gold makes the rules and do unto others as you would have done unto you. It occured to me that these days people do very little of both.
In our fast paced society it is often very difficult to stop and think to one's self, "what would I have done to me at this moment" when making a decision. On the other hand, very few people have the gold when looking at the economy on a macro level. When making attemps to either rectify this by becoming more righteous or making more money, one is met by the scripure that says, "Behold, I send you out as sheep amidst the wolves." Or as ammended for today's world, "Behold, I send you out as lions amidst the lambs." In either case, the difficutly one faces is evident as sheep stand little chance against ravenous wolves and lions have little glory in slaughtering lambs.
Something to consider as we continue to navigate our way through the pitfalls of the new millenium. Don't give up and continue going through. Remember, God loves you and so do I.
