Our focus belongs on God’s steadfast love and mercy, rather than the ever-changing values and troubles of society and the world. It can be hard sometimes, especially when those near us devalue your faith. Take heart, you are in excellent company.
“You should know this, Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times. For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents, and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God. They will act religious, but they will reject the power that could make them godly. Stay away from people like that!” — II Timothy 3:1 – 5
