January 25, 2010: We are a “throw-away” society.

Here is my Servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one, in whom I delight… He will not break a bruised reed, or quench a dimly burning wick. (Isaiah 42:1-3)

We live in a “throw-away” society. If something breaks, we tend to throw it away rather than fix it. Buying a new item is much easier than spending the time and effort it takes to repair damaged goods. Even if we decide to repair it, we soon discover that the cost of repairing it is more than it would cost to buy a new one. So frivolous have we become that we even sometimes do away with things that are slightly damaged or outdated or not in style anymore. Why repair if you can just buy a new one? No wonder our landfills are overflowing. internet marketing promotion homely.
