“Caution: School Lunch”

I have asked repeatedly on this blog: “How can God bless a nation that has turned its back on Him?”  Here’s another article indicating that I am not too far off.

“More than one-quarter of households earning $55,465-$90,000 annually have less  than three months of savings.”

How is this possible?  My household doesn’t get close to the smaller figure and we don’t get food stamps, we don’t take free school lunches, and we don’t try to squeeze money out of our government.

Yet it seems we are in better shape than those noted above.

The title of this post doesn’t surprise me.  We are a very materialistic society.  We buy things we can’t afford.  Many are in debt up to their eye sockets.

We have forgotten God.  We have left His Word sitting on the shelf.

How is it possible for Him to have favor on us?

CR

Note: Actually, the school lunch pictured above doesn’t look too bad.

    God, who is He? Oh, you mean the United States government. Now there’s a god I can appreciate, I get a ride to school, I am given a breakfast, and lunch, a ride home. Mom shops with food stamps and carries them home in our escalade.

    “what do you mean I have no money in my account? I have plenty of checks!”

      You make me chuckle, Manny. On the other hand, I should be sobbing.

      There is no question that Americans are being conditioned to rely on the government. What will happen when there is a default? I hope the pre-trib folks are correct. Then again, there is no guarantee that the rapture will happen before a default. I see coarse waters ahead either way.

      We have met the enemy and it is our voracious appetite for material things.
