Letter: Love, security and significance a Christmas gift

Love, security and significance are important words for a human being. A human being will even compromise, manipulate, lie, steal and deceive as that human being earnestly pursues these values in one's life, trying to fulfill these requisite aspects of life without not totally understanding why. As one examines human behavior, it's quite easy to figure out why humans do this if one considers God in their lives. Without God, it's not so easy to figure out.

Man or woman in the beginning never had a need to pursue love, security and significance in their lives. Love, security and significance were all provided by God and completely fulfilled in those early relationships between God and mankind. When Adam fell, it brought separation with mankind. With that separation came the need for love, security and significance. Man was now on his own to fulfill these areas in his life. Why do love, security and significance have to be fulfilled in one's life one may ask? It's because of our DNA. God put those desires in the human DNA. Man was wired that way from the beginning.

As Christmas Day comes near let us remind ourselves that God did not leave us in that condition. Through Jesus Christ, God brought us back into relationship with Him. As we accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior, we can once again have those aspects of love, security and significance reinstated into our lives the way it should be. Thank God for Christmas.

  • Letter: President's trade being swept under rug My question to all, why do we keep hearing after a number of months about the shootings in Colorado, Sandy Hook, etc., but yet the president illegally deals with terrorists, trades five for a believed deserter and now it is being swept under the rug?

  • Letter: Constitution, laws being trampled Nancy Pelosi said, "When it comes to protecting the children I'm a lioness!" Too bad that doesn't include the babies who are ripped from the womb. How ironic to hear the progressive liberals talk of compassion for illegals while killing our own.

  • Letter: Liberal says 'illegal' should be taboo Did you see where a well-known liberal wants to do away with the "I" word? 'I' as in "illegal."

  • Viewpoint: Panhandlers give wrong impression of our city First of all, let me start off by saying that I have as much empathy and compassion for those less fortunate as the next person.

  • Viewpoint: Voters, especially seniors, should ask questions It’s that time of year again. Kids are getting ready for school, corporations are reviewing their semi annual reports and — yes — many seniors are filling out their absentee ballots. Some are voting because they are fed up with the status quo, some out of habit and some because they feel it is their civic duty.

  • Viewpoint: Adding such a robust water resource with Mounds Lake would set us apart I have lived in Madison County most of my life, and for the past 14 years, I served on the Town Council in Pendleton, recently retiring as president. I have watched with great interest the happenings around the proposed Mounds Mall for a few reasons.

  • Letter: Dr. David and Kay Mares are local treasures Throughout history we have had treasures that were not appreciated until years or centuries after their time. The lost art of Angkor Wat in Cambodia. The terra cotta men of China. Vincent Van Gogh was a failing, starving artist in his time. Now his works are some of the world’s most valued. Madison County has a prize of its own that should be recognized in its time.

  • Letter: Repentance is key to surviving times What happens to a nation that refuses to repent before God? What happens to a nation that had strong Christian beginnings, but now more closely resembles Sodom and Gomorrah?
