Still WE Wait

In America everything is put over the top. It is overrated. Everything can always be bigger and better. Everything can be improved or redone from what they are now. Everything. We can never be happy with what we have. We always need the "next big thing."
God loved us so much. He put us here for ONE main purpose. To serve Him. To share HIS glorious news. To tell the World about how wonderful He is. To share His Love! Yet still WE all wait. We sit on our couches watching tv, playing video games, eating excess amounts of food, living life to the very fullest. Forgetting the MAIN reason we are here. We are not here to eat, to party, to watch tv, to buy that new laptop, to get the new cell phones, or to make ourselves happy. We are not here for that!
We all seem to live in this fairy tale and take the thing of "Oh, someone else will do it" over our concince. We forget that children are starving, crying, orphaned, begging for love. We forget that we are living so wonderfully while others suffer. We forget that we waste SO much. We throw plates of food away because "you weren't hungry." We take SO much for granted. We take for granted the next meal, the warm bed, the air condition, the love our families offer. Everything we have could be GONE. Gone in the BLINK OF AN EYE. Everything you build your life around could disappear in a flash. Without you even knowing what hit you it could ALL BE GONE.
Jesus does not tell us to leave it to others. He does not tell us to just hit that "donate" button. He doesn't tell us to just ignore the crisis of everyone in the world. He tells us to pick up our cross and follow Him. We are commanded in James 1:27 to look after the orphans and widows in their distress. He commands us!!
So why do WE still wait?
