December 21, 2012…the world ends!
On that Friday, eleven days from today, the world will self destruct and humanity will exist no more. Except…
I suppose a remnant will remain (God always keeps a remnant, right?). If I’m blessed to be included in the remnant, then when I wake up on December 22, here’s my hope:
I hope that donuts, cake, pie, and egg nog ice cream no longer have calories;
I hope there is no more waiting in line especially at Wal-Mart or the bank;
I hope my hair is automatically self-cleaning;
I hope my acne clears up permanently;
I hope there are no more red light cameras;
In fact, I hope there’s no more traffic, period!
I’m being silly, of course. I don’t believe the world will end on December 21. I do, however, believe there will be a great spiritual shift as humanity leapfrogs to a higher level relationship with God.
Can you imagine a world where:
People are incapable of hurting (intentionally or not) one another;
Crime and injustice are no more;
All people are treated as equals regardless of… (skin color, background, national origin, etc.–you fill in the blank);
Tranquility and harmony reside at all times;
There is no lack and all people are free.
Oh, wait! Did I just paraphrase the Constitution of the United States? Oops! So maybe we do need the world to end for another chance at getting it right. What do you think?
