Instead of giving God His rightful place at the center of our lives, we have substituted the “god” of Self. Only Christ can change our hearts – and through us begin to change the world.
Does this mean we can never make any progress against the massive problems that assail us – poverty, war, injustice, famine, sickness, disease? No, of course not; God wants us to fight evil wherever it is found. But our greatest need is for repentance and spiritual renewal.
Pray that this may happen – beginning with you.
For from within, out of men’s hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice,deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly.
