"One of these things is not like the other" is a children's tune that teaches a valuable truth. A more valuable lesson to teach kids would be to discern between right and wrong and between good and bad. That would have possibly prevented the ruckus in shopping malls around the country last night. With too much free time and a lack of good judgment, most young people look for ways to make trouble and broadcast it for others to see. The bad news is the way to stop this from happening in the future is to limit time youth can congregate in public and shut down social media, like that's going to happen.
It wasn't until a lawyer under trial for impeachment said, "It depends on what the meaning of is is," that we've given someone a pass on answering a "yes/no" question to powerful people in court. It appears that we've also given a pass to people on what is decent and acceptable behavior. Add to that fact witnesses are allowed to give false and misleading testimony without consequence, society has become an accident no longer waiting to happen. It's good to know this is a sign for the soon coming King, but it also means things for believers will be tougher the closer we get.
You, O Lord, are the Source of my hope, the reason I expect joy in the morning.
