Forget the box of chocolates! If you’re looking for a place where you never know what you’re going to get then watch the news. I understand that different news offices/stations have different owners, different audiences and different purposes; but at times the media can seem so schizophrenic with the issues and stories they cover, or the lack thereof.
Case-in-point, here are two examples:
The first is a head scratcher picked up on by Neal Pollard. Here’s the link for his short, but well said, article called “Searching For The Outrage Over Amazon.” There’s no point in me trying to repeat what he has already said. It’s about the obvious several shades of rainbow-colored hypocrisy when it comes to the general homosexual agenda supported by the news media…especially over the last few weeks. It’s one of those things that I’ve come to expect from the news, but I still scratch my head when I think about it.
The second is a heart warmer about two brothers in Tennessee that I happened to catch yesterday. It’s a great story (video) about love, encouragement, humility and loyalty that’s worth the time it takes to watch. Here’s the link for it.
The news has a special way of keeping a person wondering when it comes to stories about morality.
Remember, we need to “[Have] our eyes fixed on Jesus, the guide and end of our faith, who went through the pains of the cross, not caring for the shame, because of the joy which was before him, and who has now taken his place at the right hand of God’s seat of power. Give thought to him who has undergone so much of the hate of sinners against himself, so that you may not be tired and feeble of purpose.” (Hebrews 12:2-3, BBE)
