Is this another symptom of the "NOW" generation? Contrast this with the opening lines of Robert Browning's poem :Rabbi Ben Era: "Grow old along with me, The best is yet to be The last of life for which the first was made." James 5:7,8 urges us to be "patient, therefore, brethren" --- not just for the ketchup to flow faster, but to "bear patiently the cross of grief or pain" and trust that the Lord always has something better in store for us ( certainly, better than a few drops of ketchup!!) "Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ" (Titus 2:13) Sincerely, Yours in the Master's service, Chris Ederesinghe

| We live in a world that values 'things' a great deal. It seems to be that 'stuff" is the greatest treasure of our culture. The more toys you pile up, the more power you possess is what this life is all about, right? Jesus challenges this notion and encouragers his followers to store up a different kind of treasure; a treasure that will last into eternity.
