I was reading the Chattanooga Times Free Press and found this interesting article! For the first time in memory according to the article the number of land lines in the US dropped and a corresponding number of cell phones increased.
According to the article in this first decade of the 21st century virtually every American has a refrigerator and television at home. Nearly 2/3s of the homes in America now have a computer.
Regardless of all the bad news you are hearing very few Americans (just over 10%) have unpaid mortgages etc. Overall the census reports that the majority of Americans think that things are better now than in 1992.
As I read this article all I could think was of how good our God is and how He has blessed. People have most everything they need in the physical and financial sense of the word but I think that they are in desperate need for someone to care for their souls. That is where you and I come in. I hope you are making it an every day thing to talk about the Lord Jesus and all that He has done for you.
They have everything else that they need. Now they need what only God can do for them and you and I are here to get the good news to them.
