Feb 11 – The Isolation Society

Call us a fast society, an efficient society, but don’t call us a personal society. We communicate via email, and text messages, gas up with credit cards, make deposits online and buy over the internet. We can cycle through a day and never say “hello.” We are set up for isolation.” Those are the words of author Max Lucado, in his book “Outlive your Life.” Happily, that is not so when it comes to communicating with our Heavenly Father. He says, “Call unto me and I will answer you.” And when we do call on the Lord, John, in the New Testament reminds us, “If we confess our sins, He….will forgive us our sins.” It is also good to know that we will never be bothered by an automated response from Heaven, telling us that God is too busy to talk to us. And when anyone calls on the Lord for His forgiveness, and desires to become His child, this simple prayer is all we need- “God be merciful to me a sinner.”
