What Makes the World Go Round?

I have several ideas on what makes the world go round.

Of course it is truly God who makes the world go round. Hebrews 11: 3 says, "Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear." I love that verse. It settles Creation.

But on a more frivolous note, there are some other things that I believe make the world go round. According to the song, it is LOVE that makes the world go round. I guess I believe this to a certain extent, but there are many people and cultures that don't have much love. So it must be other things that make their world go round.

I also believe that BILLS make the world go round. I pay bills; therefore I am. If there are no bills to pay, we probably don't own a house or pay rent; we don't have utilities; we don't have a car or put gas in a car; we don't go to the doctor or vet; we don't buy gifts; etc, etc, etc.

Since I've been working at the Sheriff's Office, I've come to believe that CRIME makes the world go round. It lets many people know they really do exist either because they've had things stolen or damaged, or they've been harmed, graffitied, or scammed, or they just read the newspapers or listen to the news about these things. Or the big OR is that maybe they commit these crimes. Maybe a crop of drugs grown in Brazil is gathered and sold to a middleman and to another middleman, and then put on a boat and sold to an American dealer who sells it to many other American dealers who sell it to our children and druggies, which ruins their lives and the lives of their families. This one isn't really very funny or frivolous.

But my last idea of what makes the world go round is SEEDS. Apple seeds, tomato seed, cucumber seeds, weed seeds, human seeds, tree seeds, and many, many more. Without seeds human lives would come to an end. I'm so glad God planned the seeds along with the completed fruit, veggies, etc.

And maybe God spun the world like a top several thousand years ago, and it's still spinning. And that's why the world goes round.

Missed that one, too! Where have I been? Oh yeah, sick with some stomach stuff. I think the earth is a top and God just keeps spinning it around, hoping we'll fall off and something better will stick to it. :)
