The Paradox of our age :




We have bigger houses but smaller families;
More conveniences, but less time;
We have more degrees, but less sense;
More knowledge, but less judgment;
More experts, but more problems;
More medicines, but less healthiness;
We’ve been all the way to the moon and back,
but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbor.
We build more computers to hold more information to
produce more copies than ever but have less communication.
We have become long on quantity,
but short on quality.
These are times of fast foods but slow digestion;
Tall man but short character;
Steep profits but shallow relationships.
It’s a time when there is much in the window,
but nothing in the room.

Very true, I have been thinking about things like this recently and that post put it perfectly.

Indeed, everything that you've said is true... and the majority of human beings are still sleeping at the wheel... but, there is hope, for: The Mighty One Never Sleeps, and He Has Already Begun Providing Us The Wake Up Call!

Meanwhile, " The Axe lies at the base of The Trees "....

Ahava and Shalom.
