Sept 19 – Fanciful Predictions

Now that we’re in the 21st century, there are flying cars, jet packs, waterproof living rooms and a pool on every rooftop. Those are some of the fanciful predictions for how we’d be living today. But many of the utopian predictions about daily life in the 21st century did not come true. While dreamers and inventors are to be encouraged, and many did see their dreams and inventions did come to pass, it is prudent to remember that not everything new is necessarily good, nor is everything old necessarily bad. For example the Bible is old, but it is still with us, still true. The famous 119th Psalm says, Forever O Lord, your Word is settled in heaven. The Bible, God’s inspired Word has been, and always will be unchanging and completely dependable. It’s message is as relevant today as when it was written. King david prayed, “Lead me in your truth and teach me for you are the God of my salvation. That is an excellent prayer for all of us. d
