Friendship in the New Millennium
How many close friends do you have?
Well, it turns out, Americans' lists of close friends has shrunk down to two, reduced from three soul mates 25 years ago, a new study suggests.
But how much floor space do you live in?
The National Association of Home Builders reports that the median size for a new single family home in 2003 was about 2,070 square feet. Family size has decreased almost 25 percent over the past 30 years; however the size of new houses has increased about 50 percent, to slightly more than 2,300 square feet today, up from 1,500 square feet in the 1990s.
It turns out that quite possibly all signs point to the fact that Americans have egregiously evolved over the past 20 years of the technology revolution. In spite of Facebook and Twitter we have less focus on friends and more emphasis on space, materialism and collecting things.
In Matthew 6:19, Jesus said: “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.”
1 Timothy 6:7 also speaks, “For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.”
Come, store up treasures in heaven! The next Servants of the Father of Mercy homeless deliveries of food, water, clothing, rosaries and supplies to the 70,000 + homeless living in Southern California is . . .
