Shooting for the Stars

A couple of news stories have caught my eye the past few weeks. The first had to do with India’s fledgling space program and the second had to do with said space program successfully landing a probe on the moon. Is it just me or is that a blatant case of spending money you don’t have, on stuff you don’t need, to impress people you don’t like? Now maybe I’m wrong, I’ve been wrong before, but isn’t India a third world country that struggles with providing adequate food and housing for their people? And if that is the case, that there are starving people living in squalor, than I think the Indian Government might have it’s priorities a little mixed up.
And then it was with national pride that the people of India celebrated the accomplishment. Kind of like applauding the dance band on the Titanic.
But really, aren’t we sometimes guilty of the same thing as Christians and churches? You know, we are more interested in making sure people are impressed, than making sure they are saved. And if that’s the case, then we have our priorities mixed up. Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
