Changes

Times change.  Society changes.  Ecclesiastes 3:1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:

What is good one day may be bad another.  What is acceptable now may not be acceptable in the future.  Some things improve.  Others go down the toilet.

I was watching old re-runs of Perry Mason which was filmed in the late 50’s and early 60’s.  Everyone was smoking.  In 2014 that is taboo.  It would never happen on a TV series now.  No African Americans.  Men all wore suits.  Women all wore dresses.  Judges and lawyers were men.  Secretaries were women.  Doctors were men.  Women were nurses.  Raymond Burr dated women in public but was gay.  If he would have admitted to being gay, he would have never gotten another part.

Times change.  Some are good.  Some are bad.  Be careful what you stand for.

Daniel 2:20-22

New International Version (NIV)

20 “Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever;

    wisdom and power are his.
21 He changes times and seasons;
he deposes kings and raises up others.
He gives wisdom to the wise
and knowledge to the discerning.
22 He reveals deep and hidden things;
he knows what lies in darkness,
and light dwells with him.
