COME ON, PEOPLE! (People in general.) Have we become SO gullible/bored/lazy/misdirected/unfulfilled that we have nothing to do but pass on information/YouTube/rumors/all manner of unsubstantiated material back and forth? Am I so needy of affirmation/attention/approval that I need to change my profile picture/re-post if I love my husband, sons, daughters, and pets when prompted/parade my schedule daily and publicly? (OK. Re-reading that, it could sound a little judgmental, I suppose.)
First of all, note the spelling (or MISspellings) and punctuation errors in one of the more recent examples (circulating on facebook) above! Secondly, who KNOWS what the truth is about that particular one?!? Who CARES?
When he (Jesus) saw the crowds, he had compassion on them
because they were confused and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. (Matthew 9:36)
I pray to be discerning. I want to be more compassionate--like Jesus.He came to bring LIGHT and LIFE to shepherd-less, confused and helpless people. Should we not do the same?

(THERE! I got THAT off my chest!)
Now...Back to Christmas!
Light and Life to all He brings
Ris'n with healing in His wings
Mild He lays His glory by
Born that man no more may die
Born to raise the sons of earth
Born to give them second birth.
Hark! The herald angels sing....
