It is so easy to start campaigns for what we like and do not like. But we are most likely only pursuing our own desire. We assume that our plan is the best solution. In many cases, the problems we focus on are secondary.
In decaying societies it is popular to pass more laws to solve problems. More laws, however, rarely solve anything. This help is superficial at best. We need to strive for real cures. Did you ever hear of a law that requires you to love or help someone? Probably not. The problem is with our heart, not the law.
We need to face it. The resolutions that we make to conquer problems are often inadequate. We are trying only to prevent bad things from happening rather than actively pursuing a course of action to make good things occur.
Many times we have not really thought through what God wants accomplished in a given situation. Our solution then fails to accomplish what really needs to be done. God is trying to wake us up to the problems behind the problems.
