How Do We Deal With Trouble?

Some people get rich

by creating chaos in the world

and find themselves forever chasing peace

only to realize that their lives have slipped through their fingers

and they still haven’t found anything worth living for

other people talk about all the trouble in the world

debating all the different ways to take action

and find that talking is like any other form of intoxication

it makes a person feel really good about going nowhere and accomplishing nothing

still others look for meaning in performance

of boldly proclaiming the words of someone who said

go into the world

to a congregation that prefers to remain seated

yet there are still few people willing to use what little they have

to share hope with the troubled of the world

and learn about the blessing

that they can only receive by being a blessing
