Faith, Hope, Love, And Climate Change

Is our weather unpredictable? Sunny one minute and black the next. Chicken Little, is the sky going to fall today? Will the oceans rise & cover bathers on the beaches of the world? It seems the world organizations think so as they have named ‘climate change’ the greatest threat to mankind. I say the greatest threat to mankind is the fear of doomsday that is creeping up on the world.

How many young people, and children believe there is little hope for the planet? And if the youth think that way it may come to be true. Do we remember the great hope of our younger days. We thought anything was possible. Not everyone, but the majority were excited about the future and their part in it.

Wake up and smell the coffee. We are not in control of the sunrise, the orbit of the earth, etc, etc. We can have some impact on our environment cleaning up the air and water. Using all of our natural resources including coal, oil, wind sun and water wisely. And also the greatest resource, the human mind. If we look deeply into the gifts available, there is reason to hope. But we cannot be controlled by fear. The following Bible verse puts things in perspective.

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end. They are renewed every morning, ‘great is your faithfulness’, “The Lord is my portion says my soul. Therefore, I will hope in Him.” Lamentations 3:22
