Proverbs 14: 7
Go from the presence of a foolish man, when thou perceivest not in him the lips of knowledge.
This Proverb brings to my mind the current state of the Main Stream Media (MSM). All we here day in and day out is:
The world is terrible
They hate you, you should hate them.
If you look to other sources, to which you are not easily fed by headlines, you will find the world is a better place than it has ever been. Less people are starving. Access to medical care has increased. People are living longer. 51% of the world population has access to the internet, which means they have the ability to communicate with anyone. You may think the world is dark and dreary but things are getting better.
If we keep listening to the MSM things could get darker. Maybe even darker than it ever has. Let us not fight each other. If it doesn’t hurt you then don’t worry about it. Take care of your own affairs before worrying about trying to change anything else. When your stuff is together then go about changing the world.
I will close with a quote from Jordan Peterson, “ The best you can do, is to do what is right”. What is right is to get your things together. Get out of debt. If you have friends have friends that make your life better. Make your friends life better by knowing you.

Just as a fletcher straightens an arrow shaft, even so the discerning man straightens his mind — so fickle and unsteady, so difficult to guard
