The Good Ole Days

I hope you will forgive my venture into nostalgia this week. I believe that in spite of my stories there were lessons to be learned. I have tried to analyze why I was so nostalgic. The definition of nostalgia is "a wistful desire to return in thought or fact to a former time  in one's life, to one's home or homeland, to one's family or friends". I suspect that living in a world and society that is out of control causes one to wish for simpler times.
There was a time in my life when following the commands of Jesus were important; morality was expected; the church was important and how to be saved was explained clearly and often. But now as we race toward end times and immorality increases; truth becomes more and more confused and the fear for our grandchildren expands , it is only natural for us who are older to slip into nostalgia. The old times seem like the better times.
Our times are described in Isa. 5:20-21, "woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness; woe to those who are wise in their own eyes and clever in their own sight." It is no wonder we long for "the good ole days".
Remember, however that Jesus said, "I am with you always, even to the end of the age." (Matt. 28:20)
