Fall Is In the Air – Finally

Wow, the weather has changed and the nights are brisk. The forecast is for snow this coming Monday just in time for Halloween to be freezing! Did you get used to the nice warm weather we had for most of October? Some of us were looking forward to the cooler weather while others would gladly take the warmth all year. We like different things. Isn’t that true in most areas of our lives? We can still get along even though you like cold weather and I like warm, can’t we? In our present climate in our country, it seems like everyone wants to be mad at someone else because of some ideology, some new political statement, who they voted for or didn’t vote for, and a thousand other reasons. We have become a nation of complainers and gripers. How sad. As Christians, we have every reason to be joyful. Don’t let the things going on around you make you angry and cause you to snap at others. Don’t dislike someone because he or she voted Democrat or Republican. In the BIG scheme of things, none of that really matters. What matters is my relationship with God and your relationship with God. Learn to get along with people even when you don’t always see eye-to-eye on some of the worldly issues we encounter regularly. Rejoice in your salvation and theirs. Know that this world will pass away and our future is secure as long as we remain in Jesus.
