Extended version of signs of the time


Recommended Posts

Read this slowly - digest it thoroughly

We have taller buildings, but shorter tempers;

Wider freeways, but narrower viewpoints;

We spend more, but have less;

We buy more, but enjoy it less.

We have bigger houses and smaller families;

More conveniences, but less time;

We have more degrees, but less sense;

More knowledge, but less judgment;

More experts, but more problems;

More medicine, but less wellness.

We spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry too quickly, stay up too late, get

up too tired, read too seldom, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.

We talk too much, love too seldom and lie too often.

We've learned how to make a living, but not a life;

We've added years to life, not life to years.

We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet the new neighbour.

We've conquered outer space, but not inner space;

We've done larger things, but not better things;

We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul;

We've split the atom, but not our prejudice;

We write more, but learn less;

Plan more, but accomplish less.

We've learned to rush, but not to wait;

We have higher incomes; but lower morals;

More food but less appeasement;

More acquaintances, but fewer friends;

More effort but less success.

We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but have less communication;

We've become long on quantity, but short on quality.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion;

Tall men (& women), and short character;

Steep profits, and shallow relationships.

These are the times of world peace, but domestic warfare;

More leisure and less fun;

More kinds of food, but less nutrition.

These are days of two incomes, but more divorce;

Of fancier houses, but broken homes.

These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality,

Overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill.

It is a time when there is much in the show window, and nothing in the storeroom.

What catches your attention?If not here lets do this;Just add to the lists the signs of times

Very thought provoking.:punk:

Very much so indeed---

I feel that only a very enlightened person, one who chooses to use Gods Holy Word as his own moral compass, and who makes an effort to filter all of lifes decisions thru that guide, will come close to understanding and appreciating the wisdom to be found in those lines....

Thank you for this interesting start to my day......

May Jehovah Almighty keep all of us safe and sound for another day....

Thank-you so much this is exactly the topic of conversation for the last few months that EVERY has been talking about.

No offense to young ones but it seems they have all the knowledge but absolutely no common sense.

I went to buy a piece of material it was cut over 400cm on an an angle too short I went to office works to get some photo copying down instead of 15min it was 7days later and 8 attempts before they got it right :wall:

Most people I meet these days are socially challenged.

But academically bright they have the big fancy cars and houses but no heart.

Depression and mentally illness is increasing

Obviously it is because 2Tim 3 but also I think because people don't live in extended family communities anymore there is just the nucleus of mum dad kids that is it.
