Pearls and Dreams
Pluto ... Pluto has been demoted. Pluto, according to "The powers that be", is now, a Dwarf Planet. Dr. A mentioned the possibility of this demotion earlier this week and asked for his readers comments. I sarcastically commented they couldn't do that because when I memorized the planets, I used the sentence
My Very Effecient Mother Just Sent Us Nine Pizza's.
It got me thinking. First ... The Powers that be. Who are they to demote a planet. God made the Planets ...they get to demote it to a dwarf planet?
But, seriously ...we got through our lives thinking we know how things are. Then someone comes along ...and changes the rules. Decides what is, isn't. It is something else. It belongs in a different classification. It doesn't fit in the rules as they've been accepted.
Did anything change in the way Pluto was created? No
Did anything change in the way Pluto orbited the sun?
Did anything change in ANYTHING about PLUTO itself? No ...only in the way MAN classifies and views Pluto.
Things in our lives change. Rules change all the time. Right, wrong ...acceptable, unacceptable. Jobs come and go. Neighbors come, family goes. Business go up, sky scrapers fill the sky,(and at times,are horrifically brought down by terrorists, changing our hearts and landscapes forever!) Pollution fills the air, then laws are changed to clean it up. Politicians change their stands with the whispers of the voice of pulic opinion.
Everything changes ... even what we think we know to be of true, scientific fact ... My Very Effecient Mother Just Sent Us Nine Pizza's ...scientific fact ..subject to change by the Powers that be in charge of the sciences at the time. This has been going on since the time of Job (don't believe me, read Job chapter 8, don't like the King James, read it in the New Century, it's today's English ...talk about change) Job 8:8&9
"Ask old people; find out what their ancestors learned, 9 because we were only born yesterday and know nothing. Our days on earth are only a shadow."
Hebrews 13:7&8 told us what we can depend on
7 Remember your leaders who taught God's message to you. Remember how they lived and died, and copy their faith. 8 Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever.
What can be counted on. God's message ... not the disagreement that religions fight over ...
But the message of Jesus ... to love the Lord Your God with all your heart mind and strength, and to Love your neighbor as yourself.
You can't depend from day to day on what we think we know ...or our mothers might stop delivering to us what they've always delivered when we've expected.
But God ... He is the SAME ... YESTERDAY TODAY and FOREVER ...and that is love.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosover believes on him, shall not perish, but have ever lasting life. (John 3:16)
Pluto, may not be today, what we thought it was yesterday. But Jesus ..is still the same.
