As we are inundated with news concerning our leaders, neighbors, selves, we may be victims of 'paralysis from analysis' and too much information (TMI). What should we do? How should we respond?
I recall seeing gerbils fill their cheeks with seeds and then runaway to their den- to eat the seeds in comfort. That I think is a plan that may have some merit for us. At some point we will have to, in the comfort of silence and in the presence of our Lord, chew on what we are hearing. And after we've thought about it, and blended it with prior knowledge, conclusions should be drawn and lies/nonsense rejected. It is then that we must act.
We are responsible representatives of our Lord. Lets honor Him with our works.
