Something to think about

I finished up a commentary on the Book of Matthew written by N.T. Wright last night. This quote gave me something to chew on, especially in light of all our focus on he effort to bailout Wall Street.

We too in our world have discovered so much, learned so much, invented so much, and yet are without power to do many of th things that really matter. We have invented wonderful machines for making war, but nobody has found one that will make peace. We can put a man on the moon, but we can't put food in hungry stomachs. We can listen to the songs the whales sing on the ocean floor, but we can't hear they crying of human souls in the next street.

my thoughts are we can do these things. We just choose not to!
