And know this: in the last days, times will be hard. You see, the world will be filled with narcissistic, money-grubbing, pretentious, arrogant, and abusive people. They will rebel against their parents and will be ungrateful, unholy, uncaring, coldhearted, accusing, without restraint, savage, and haters of anything good. Expect them to be treacherous, reckless, swollen with self-importance, and given to loving pleasure more than they love God.
Even though they may look or act like godly people, they’re not.
They deny His power.
I tell you: Stay away from the likes of these.
(2 Timothy 3:1-5)
Apathy is not peace.
Pleasure is not joy.
Control is not order.
Tolerance is not love.
Self-sufficiency is not sufficient.
I ask no other sunshine, than the sunshine of Your face, oh Lord. Oh come, oh come, Emmanuel!
