I have been told that 2 things are certain in life: death and taxes. I would like to add a third – a continual lowering of world life standards. It does not surprise me that the world continues to sink lower in terms of life standards. But it does surprise me when we claim to have a new Lord and Master yet we continue to live by the lowering standards of this world. The laws that our country were founded on continue to be disrepected and disregarded. I expect that from the world, but not from the Redeemed. Our old mindset and ways of thinking need to come out from the world and be transformed. Abortion, adultery, unfaithfulness in marriage, stealing, lying, disrespect for parents, consuming materialism, living for money, cheating employers, this should never be normal behaviour for a Christian yet churches are full of such and look no different from the world. Let us purpose in our hearts to aim to walk higher because if we aim at nothing, we will hit it every time.
