Why is it?
Why is it common for American teenage girls to think that a guy who is kind and honorable is a wimp?
Why is it that most people hate their job?
Why is it that women who have had multiple sexual relationships get upset that their children don't respect them?
Why is it when you share something positive about yourself, you can always count on someone out there accusing you of being proud?
Why is it that God is so willing to smooth out a stupid mistake the moment you are sorry, repent and turn to Him for help? No one else I know will do that.
Why is it that when we are unhappy with our weight, we comfort ourselves with food?
Why is it that couples in love, who claim they will do anything, even give up their lives for each other, can't do the simplest thing of honoring their wedding vows?
Why is it that we say we hate commercials and then just sit there staring at them like zombies when they come on?
Why do parents ignore years of opportunities to nurture respect and good character when their children think of them as heros, and then wonder what went wrong when they turn into teenagers?
Why are there so many people who hate to read books?
Why is it that some of the most poverty-stricken countries are the ones where birth control is considered a sin, but child prostitution is rampant?
Why are there Christians who are so quick to say they can't, and think they're being humble?
Why does God put up with this frustratingly thick-headed world and still want to take the few He can find who believe in Him to heaven one day?
Come Lord Jesus, come quick!
