Scripture of the Day - June 22, 2012

Ps 119:11  Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

God's Word is perfect and it doesn't change. People, on the other hand, are far from perfect and we change all the time. Our perception of right and wrong changes with each generation, and with each passing generation we are deteriorating. Here is an example of how nonsensical we've become. 
I just read an article regarding the proposed ban, in New York, on the sale of sugary drinks larger than 16 ounces, in an effort to combat obesity. The mayor hopes the move will help lead to different behaviors.
Never mind the fact that we shouldn't be drinking the poisonous stuff anyway, this announcement came just days before the city celebrated National Donut Day in Madison Square Park! Talk about mixed messages! 
Never mind the mixed messages, this is a narrow minded, short sighted knee jerk reaction that is not getting to the "fundamental" issue...and it will lead people to turn to the diet drinks not under the ban which cause as much or more damage!
What a mess our society is in, not only with regard to our physical health but also our spiritual health. We have turned from the Word of God to other things which will damage us in the long run.  We say a little bit of sin here and a little bit there, don't call this sin and don't call that sin, let's rename it. 
Do you want to prosper? Do you want to be in good health? Then hide the Word of God in your heart so you know what you ought to be doing.
