The Expanse of Expression

Ecclesiastes 12:12 "But, my child, be warned: There is no end of opinions ready to be expressed. Studying them can go on forever and become very exhausting!
13 Here is my final conclusion: Fear God and obey his commands, for this is the duty of every person. 14 God will judge us for everything we do, including every secret thing, whether good or bad."

Flip through the news channels-Fox, CNN,MSNBC, and you will see a never ending array of experts. One of my good friends once told me that an expert is "the fool who thinks he knows everything". The segments are a battle to get in the most soundbites in a 45 second clip.
I saw one prominant author who must have gone through a lot of trouble to get in the studio and he answered 1 question!

As I read God's word- I see the patient persisitent pace of the Creator. His truth cuts through all of the fluffy spin of ear tickling and sensationalism.

Oh I cry for our culture to not get swooned by the drumbeat of the day. Keep the Word open and discern.
