People are people, so why should it be, you and I should get along so awfully? That’s a song lyric by Depeche Mode and I feel sometimes it is right. There are so many fights over stupid things when school classmates are in a crowd. Look at the Hong Kong protests which turn ugly and violent when HK young people want to live differently than the traditional China rule. Even in local area, you see people arguing amongst social clubs, church members, or even family members. Why do we get along so awfully?

Let’s talk about the Internet. It brings any kind of info to your fingertips. It brings people dating and leading to possible marriage. It brings gamers on one game front to compete against each other. You know what else it brings. It brings loneliness, isolation, and lack of human interaction, I had a dinner party recently and the young generation who are on the I-Phones and tablets don’t really interact very well. They seem to be socially inept. They don’t want to talk to you or know how to talk to you. They just want the wifi password and go off doing stuff on the internet. This is really sad in my opinion, but unfortunately true.

Let’s talk about family dinner. In the old generation, this was staple or even a given that parents and children sat together at the dinner table and had a meal every night. Nowadays, I don’t even know if this exists or happens consistently. Everybody is running around and nobody can find time to have a meal together. I think this is sad. It doesn’t seem anybody knows what each other is doing in the family.

Let’s talk about bullying. Now, I’ve seen it when I was a student but not at the level nowadays. It is staggering. I see you want to associate with people that have a common bond with you like sports or clubs but c’mon, do you have to taunt people outside your circle. That is just destructive and wrong. We are all human and I wish the righteous people would stand up and put an end to this despicable thing.

Thanksgiving is this Thursday and I know it is hectic. Cooking is crazy and you got all the strange relatives and friends in the same room. If everybody helps out cooking and breaks the wall down by talking and reaching out to the strange ones, you will have a great Thanksgiving and meal together. That is what Christ always wanted for us.

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chronicles 7:14

In Christ,

Stan Yee
