GOD’S WORD FOR DECEMBER 7
GOD’S WORD FOR DECEMBER 7 ~ ~ Ecclesiastes 1:9~ ~ “The thing that has been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.”
In our education, we were led to believe that people in the far past didn’t have much to contribute to science or industry. They were pictured as illiterate, bumbling people who were just getting along.
It was suggested that they didn’t even know the difference between historical facts and superstitious legends.
This is why medical researchers dismissed a cure for fever that dated to 340 A.D. An ancient Chinese book of herbal remedies recommended that to cure a fever, one should soak a particular weed in about a liter of water and drink the resulting tea. In typical modern fashion, researchers had doubts that this cure would work. However, the weed named in the folk cure provides a compound that may be an even more effective treatment for malaria than Quinines. It treats cases that Quinines don’t affect and produces no side effects.
In the last two years, have we not seen a replay of this attitude? Is it pride and a distorted view of the past, or is it greed for the future profits of the drugs they proclaim as better?
“Better is the poor that walks in his integrity, than he that is perverse in his lips,…”
“The Lord maketh poor, and maketh rich: he bringeth low, and lifteth up.”
But it is the Lord God, Creator of all who really heals and keeps us alive. Because He is as close as our next breath!!!!!
For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.
