Chicago Hell: 53% increase in shootings and killings compared to the same time last year


We moved our son Lars out of Chicago a few months ago because the City has become hell on earth. It always been a very violent city, but it is getting worse.

How are you doping today? Here is an awesome reminder from Billy Graham:

There are many things in life we need to flee in order to stay close to the Lord. We need to flee pride — that tendency to think of ourselves more highly than we ought — and instead live with humility. We need to avoid causing strife and jealousy, and self- centeredness that prompts such behavior. We need to avoid abusive language and instead develop a Spirit-controlled tongue.

We cannot depend on our own strength and ability or even our own self-discipline. Reading and obeying God’s Word will strengthen us in life. “He brought us forth by the word of truth…. Let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God” (James 1:18-20). May we keep our eyes on God.
