Innocence Lost

We just came out of the Christmas Season. I have seen more Christmas trees in the trash every day. There are a few holdouts, who still have their lights up. All the gifts were given, and food eaten. It’s a new day, so leave yesterday behind and move on. There are people to see and things to do. We don’t have time for anything but living. Sentiment is fine for birthdays and holidays, but the rest of the year is about making money and living well. Remember living well is the best revenge. When did we lose our innocence? Why is our drive being about the worthless things of this world? Even if you gain the whole world and lose your soul, what is it worth? Our lives were so much better when we were innocent, and we cared about the things of value. What is valuable in this world. Those things are even written down. They are love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance. And as it says, against these things there is no law. Those wonderful attributes and attitudes can’t be bought or stolen. There is only one place to restore your innocence. That place is in the arms of God. And all you must do is to ask Him, and God will respond. In fact, God will run to meet you and welcome you back into the family.
