The more I really think about it, I have to wonder: Is it cosmic or comic? The idea of a homeless man telling a group of fishermen that they were the salt of the earth and the light of the world. Keep in mind, Jesus the King came to this planet called earth to fulfill His purpose and that He did. When speaking to His disciples, He made this statement: "...Foxes have holes and birds of the air have nests, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lay His head". By the way, He was a long way from His home.
Remember this one thing, whenever the principles and attitudes that were entrusted in this small group were implemented or put in operation, the values of society went up. But whenever those principles and attitudes have been rejected or neglected, society has decayed. If rejection and neglect continue, it will be destroyed.
I want you to know, many individuals think that the Old Testament of God's constitution isn't relevant for today. Now I assure you this most important thing: The Old Testament showed the character and principles of God. As you read and study God's constitution (Bible) notice how God dealt with disobedience and how He handled sin. All disobedience to God's Word is sin. It is because of disobedience that the world is in this situation. For as by one man's disobedience many were made sinners, so also by one Man's obedience many will be made righteous". Always read and study God's Word and don't be sidetracked by what you hear through the Media. Read what God's Constitution states: "Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience". Remember reading and studying God's Word isn't enough. You must live by it.
