I carried a knife in my pocket exactly like the one in the picture from elementary school until I turned 41. It was something I learned in Boy Scouts – be prepared. I used it almost every day until I had it taken away from me before boarding a plane shortly after the 911 attacks. I haven’t carried one much since. I certainly wouldn’t try to take one into a school and I absolutely wouldn’t encourage a child to carry one. They could be expelled indefinitely or possibly put into juvenile detention!
What happened to our society? What used to be a tool that was helpful for multiple jobs is no longer permitted; it violates the “No Tolerance” rule in schools.
We don’t live in world driven by freedom and self-confidence; we live in a world driven by fear and intolerance.
Luke 21:32 NIV
32 “Truly I tell you, this generation will certainly not pass away until all these things have happened. 33 Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.
For better or for worse, man’s laws are constantly changing. Whatever happens to be the hot topic at the time forces people in public office to nullify, modify, or tweak the laws that govern our society. I may not like them, but I have to live by them. Next year the popular sentiment may change and pocket knives will be allowed again. Who knows?
God’s laws never change ……….. never, ever.
It’s good to know that some rules are worth keeping and that they can’t be improved upon.
Have a good hot cup of something delicious. It’ll get your day started right!
