Which one are you?

If you knew that the actions you took today would hurt your grandchildren tomorrow, would you still take them? What kind of person would knowingly hurt the future generations for their own personal gain? I know the answer, do you? An ungodly person, that's who. You see, if you believe in God then you believe that your reward is in heaven. Yes, heaven is an abstract thought to most of us and even the most pious amongst us has only a rudimentary idea of what heaven could possibly be. But it is the belief in heaven that informs your decisions on a daily basis. One who believes does not spend inordinate amounts of time worrying over ones own situation but worries more about neighbors, children and friends. One who believes in nothing worries only about today, about what they have now, about what they want, about what they feel they deserve...and let future generations do the same. So...which are you? Be honest because, I don't know and don't care. My job is to make you think. If you are thinking right now...then I've done my job. So every time that the government comes along and sings the sirens song about how it is going to take care of your every need; think about future generations. Are you going to leave them liberty and freedom? Or...are you going to leave them a bill for your own personal gain? Which kind of person are you?
