In one week my debit card number was stolen and used to purchase a ticket to South Africa AND my friend Gary the Garmin was stolen from my mother's car, in our driveway. (I should never leave him unattended. He's too little to protect himself!)
Here are my thoughts:
The depravity of man does not affect the goodness of God. No matter how low man sinks; no matter what man does; no matter how many punk kids break into cars out of boredom; God will remain the good Creator and LORD of the universe. My heart is saddened and disappointed, but not lost. I have not lost hope in God. Not really in man, either. There is still a spark of the holy within. It is up to God to stir it. And I trust in Him. I haven't yet decided whether I'll start locking my doors or not.
