A lot has changed, Lord, since You walked the earth

For I, the Lord
do not change...
[Malachi 3:6]
********************
"The world has changed,
unbelievably,
since You walked
the earth, Lord!"

"How so, child."

"Well, first of all,
there's buttered popcorn.
America invented that."

"Yes, My child."

"And, then there's
the electric
weedwacker."

[NOD.]

"Although, You didn't
miss anything there,
Lord. I bought one,
and two months later
it almost burned up
my lawn."

"Yes, child. I remember."

"Oh, then there's
the thermal lunchbox.
You stick this little blue gel
thing inside the bottom
part, and your lunch
stays cold. It's pretty
neat."

"I missed that, child."

"Probably folks would say
the dishwasher is the
best modern invention,
but I'm kind of lukewarm
about it."

"Explain this to Me, child."

"Well, Lord, the problem
is that you have to wash
the dishes before you
even stick them in there....
and THEN, if you live in
hard water place, like
San Antonio, everything
gets this white, powdery
stuff on it - unless you
buy this huge water
softener contraption -
which, let's be honest,
doesn't really work,
anyway."

"That is a problem."

"Oh, yeah, Lord!
You better believe it!
You have to buy these
monster bags of salt
from the grocery store!
It's a MESS! I still
haven't figured out
what the bags of salt
are supposed to do."

"It is a mystery, My child."

"Those little bottles
of hand disinfectants
are a great invention,
Lord. Though, there
was that time one of
em' leaked out into
my purse and everything
got really gooey, including
my checkbook."

"Yes, child. I saw that."

"Then, there's the
battery operated toothbrush,
the screen painted mouse
pad, the DVD player,
the space station,
American Idol,
the talking fly swatter,
the rechargable fan......"

"And sin, child?"

"The what, Lord?
[silence]
Oh, THAT!
Well.........well, Lord,
most of us would
say THAT'S gotten
only WORSE; at least,
it spreads faster -
what, with the internet
and all."

[NOD.]
"Then nothing has
changed, My beloved."

"Yeah, Lord.
I guess so.
We've even played
golf on the moon -
and we still can't get
rid of sin. Not even
those gooey hand
sanitizers can do
nothin', huh?"

"No, My child."

"We've got creams
and lotions to rub
out everything, Lord.
But, what can we
put on our sins, Lord?"

"My Blood, child.
My Blood."
*************************
The Blood of Jesus His Son
cleanses us from all sin.
[1 John 1:7]
