Out Of Control In America
I’m Steve Arterburn with a New Life moment.
Do you think life in America is out of control?
Economists have repeatedly warned that Americans have become addicted to spending and crushed by debt trying to attain lifestyles beyond their means. Doctors and nutritionists speak regularly of the rising obesity rate and the danger it represents. Educators, pastors, and child professional have long testified that generations of over-indulged American kids are growing up seriously lacking in discipline, direction, and conviction.
The common denominator here is excess. It’s become an American way of life, and to be brutally honest, it’s destroying us.
I don’t think the question can any longer be: do we know? We must ask ourselves an even tougher question: do we care?
If you’re struggling with excess, or trying to help a loved one who is, you’re certainly not alone. I care and I’d like to help you.
