The numbing of my mind has long been a concern. I witnessed, too often, the effects liquor had on loved ones. I have never smoked pot, nor have I ever partaken of mind-altering drugs. (Some would probably comment that it wasn’t necessary since I was a bit of a ‘space cadet’, just naturally.) Today, what I am about to share, with difficulty, is of grave concern. Years ago there was a very popular song entitled, “Let There Be Peace on Earth”. I must have led choirs numerous times as the they performed it. It was one of those ‘feel-good’ songs, but as I study scripture, I find it totally infused with falsehood. There is a line that says, “With God as our Father, brothers all are we”. Looking deeper into scripture, JESUS was very clear as to how you and I are welcomed into the Family of GOD. My LORD taught that HIS brothers and sisters were “Born Again”. Look up HIS conversation with Nicodemus in John 3:1-21 and you will see that the gate to the path to GOD’s Family is very narrow, and there is only one gate. So, I believe we must be very cautious in dealing with just anyone. I also believe the only ‘right’ way to know is through the discernment that comes from GOD through JESUS’ Comforter. The bottom line for me is, just as I test the water before jumping in the creek, I must look for answers in HIS WORD. It surely does save against a ‘troubled heart’, donchaknow, really. I can assure you that all of us can love each other a lot more, even if we’re simply neighbors. That’s what I get from My Box of Chocolates.    AMEN
