Romans 11:33-36

Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways! “For who has known the mind of the Lord, or who has been his counselor? Or who has given a gift to him that he might be repaid?” For from him and through him and to him are all things. To him be glory forever. Amen.

People Are Sheep...

The Wall Street Journal Online has posted a fascinating series of charts comparing presidential job-approval ratings. As you toggle through the charts, notice what kinds of historical events have triggered approval swings. Do you suppose campaign managers and media members with an agenda are noticing too?

Understanding the fickleness of people and their tendency to flow with the ever-shifting sands of public opinion should serve to bolster our determination to do as Paul commanded Timothy in 2 Timothy 4:1-4:

I solemnly charge you in the presence of God and of Christ Jesus, who is to judge the living and the dead, and by His appearing and His kingdom: preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, and will turn away their ears from the truth and will turn aside to myths.
