Understand the times

There is a Catholic blog that I keep an eye on, that also speaks to the times in which we live. I don’t agree with everything he has to say, but I thought this was insightful:

The sense was that events around the world were going to unfold very rapidly. I “saw” in my heart three orders collapse, one upon the other like dominoes: …the economy, then the social, then the political order.

Now, the economic chaos of 2008 was kicked down the road a decade or so. But it didn’t go away; the brokenness, fracture, greed and fear of a world system that is unmoored from God. The house of cards, built on quicksand, remains. Could be kicked further down the road? Maybe, I do not know. But I know this – at some point it will all come home to roost. You don’t need to be a prophet to see that!

So, we were given another decade to prepare. But, maybe we used that just to hit the snooze button, because the bed of the world is just so comfortable.

When that day comes, we will be either fully clothed, sober, alert and ready for the times. Or we will be rudely awakened, panicked, throwing on clothes and rushing about trying to catch up. Our Father desires us to be ready, and is merciful, kind and forbearing. But this time will come, as surely as night follows day. It will come.

On that day, where will our trust be rooted? In our jobs? Our bank accounts? Our families?

Or in the Rock of Ages?
