חלקנו אדישים…אבל חלקנו דואגים למצב בארץ Posted on 20/01/2013 by luisa1234

It is true that many of us demonstrate great apathy concerning anything that is connected to our fate as a nation: everyone is caught up in their person day-to-day survival, in that rat-race on the hamster wheel, in the mantra ‘I don’t know how we got into this mess but everything will be OK in the end…’ On the other hand, there are those foundless worriers who don’t know how to change things themselves yet are aware that the answer does not lie in this government or any other, for that matter.

God wants to help us change the reality.

This morning I read in the book of Habakuk chapter 1 verse 16” Therefore he sacrifices to his net and makes offerings to his dragnet; for by them he lives in luxury, and his food is rich.”

God says that the preoccupation with earning a living and ‘getting on in life’ is already too much. This does not mean to say that it is forbidden to earn money and enjoy life, but a person has to invest a little of this energy into getting to know God and experiencing His love; this relationship in itself will change the world in its entirety.

And most certainly now you will ask me why should you bother to make such an effort; surely God won’t answer and you’re just a regular nobody. But there’s no choice in the matter; each one of us has to go through this personal process and there’s no way of running away from it.

Our father in heaven is not asking us to exert great efforts and change ourselves, or to turn ourselves into religious people in order to serve Him, or to learn kaballah to know Him; He hopes that we will simply have that genuine desire (to know Him) and He will take care of the rest.

Today we have an opportunity to give God a chance and invite him into our hearts and our lives; from this we will gain the love of a Father who really cares, (apologies for the insinuation) as well as genuine change in the personal and public arena.

Who is ready to be part of this revolution?

I have translated this from Luisa’s blog.
