We're always told that everything will be better in the future. Yet despite our advances in technology, mankind will always mess things up.
I have one question I have been thinking about lately:
Where is my spaceship?
Let me explain . . .
As a young boy growing up on cartoons, whenever they showed “the future” — and understand that back in the ’50s, the future was only 30 years away — everyone flew around in spaceships. You know, George Jetson-style. But here we are, still lumbering about in in our automobiles. We have not even nailed the electric car yet, much less one that flies!
For a time, especially in the ’50′s and ’60s, there was this utopian dream of a better world. We were told that everything would be better in the future. Now we have lived long enough to know that despite our advances in technology, mankind will always mess things up.
One day we will fly!
Ah, but one day that future we all long for will come. Perhaps we will fly and we won’t even need spaceships! We will have new bodies, on a new earth, ruled over by the King of Kings and Lord of Lords. I am looking forward to that day.
That is what Jesus taught us to pray for in the Lord’s Prayer, when he instructed us to say, “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.”
Live your life well
We want our lives to count during our short time here on planet Earth.
