Almost 2013 and We’re Still Here

Well, 2012 is winding down and the earth didn’t end because the Mayan calendar struck midnight. Imagine that. My favorite piece of humor on that subject showed, I suppose, a Mayan calendar and an Oreo Cookie, side by side. They look a lot alike. The caption reads, “According to the Mayan calendar, the world is ending this month. Fortunately the Oreo Cookie says not to worry.”

It’s amazing that so many people keep on predicting the end of the world at specific times and it keeps on not happening. Just know this. The Bible says, “Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers, you have no need to have anything written to you. For you yourselves are fully aware that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. While people are saying, ‘There is peace and security,’ then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape.(1 Thessalonians 5:1–3). God doesn’t tell us when the end will be, only that it will be. So be ready. Our attitude should be “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that” (James 4:15). Everything is under his control.

Get yourself right with God. Keep yourself right with God. Have a Happy 2013. And have a cookie.
