"The sky is falling! The sky is falling!"
Sound familiar? It should. It is a quote from a nursery rhyme entitled Henny Penny. [See http://www.childrenstory.info/childrenstories/hennypenny.html for more info on the nursery rhyme.]
How many times do we hear or read quotes like that one? Except usually it is in the news whether televised, heard over the radio airwaves, or printed in newspapers, magazines, or even on billboards.
In the last year, a television reporter spoke about an expert who predicted the world coming to an end. Yet, it did not happen. We are still here. According to God's word, no one can predict the day or the hour that the Lord Jesus Christ is coming back. (Matthew 25:13; Luke 12:40)
If you listen to or read the news often enough, you will hear plenty.
World topics around the globe...
Crime. Violence. Drugs. Suicide. Disease. Death. Addiction. Destruction. Shooting. Accident. Flood. Killing. Explosion. Sickness. Earthquake. Illness. Volcano. Tremor. Prostitution. Trafficking.
Many people wonder the reason that they are so anxious, worried, afraid, or fearful. Nobody can consume that much negativity, crime, death, destruction, and the list goes on...and not have those types of thoughts or feelings.
However, Christians are supposed to live in the world but not be of the world. (John 9:5) Therefore, stop watching and believing the news of this world.
"So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God." (Romans 10:17, NKJV) Please begin reading and believing God's word instead of the world's news report.
