This is a very simple thought that the Lord has been plowing into my heart the last several days. It seems like every circumstance for the past week or so has pointed back to this principle: Love People, Like Things, Live for God.
Have you noticed that our current generation (especially of Americans) has no concept of control. We are out-of-control. The drastic rise in credit card induced bankruptcies, divorce attorneys, and mini-riots are skyrocketing. Road rage, impulse spending, and all sorts of addictions are seen as ‘normal’ in our society… even in the church! We have totally lost the concept of temperance: the moderation of passions and appetites (Galatians 5:22-23).
