We Need Change

 Love isn’t easy to find. There are many people who live their whole lives and never find the love of a spouse. There’s people who live their whole lives without knowing the love of a mother, a sister, a brother, and all too commonly, a father. This lack of love is seen everyday in our culture. I don’t know how many kids I’ve talked to who don’t have fathers. Kids who have never known who their father is. Kids who will never know what it’s like to have a dad sit down and tell them “I love you”. And it breaks my heart to know that our society creates fluidity within the family unit. Just yesterday during the Super Bowl we saw commercials that absolutely degraded morality and true love. 

There was GoDaddy commercials with women being painted and at the end encourages people to log on to see the stuff they can’t show on television. There was a flower commercial suggesting that a husband or significant other should buy flowers for their loved one so that they will return the favor with sex. We see these things on television and wonder why our society has a 50% divorce rate. These ads get shown and we sit back and wonder why our young people are increasingly getting addicted to pornography, drugs, alcohol, and sex.

How many people are up in arms at the gross commercials that get played every year as about 100 million people watch? Yet, we live in a society that screams when a benign ad featuring Tim Tebow comes out about his mother’s decision to continue on with with her pregnancy:

 

We can point people to the Father of the fatherless (psalm 68:5) and the one that can bring peace when the world seems to be in utter turmoil. I pray that we will be the change that shows the world God’s amazing love.
