Ought to Be

In an old Andy Capp cartoon strip the following exchange takes place between Andy and his wife:

Andy comes into the house and as he is taking off his coat he says, “Sorry if I shocked you, Pet. But that’s how I like to play it – tell it like it is.”
Andy’s wife replies, “That’s one thing about you.”
“Thanks,” replies Andy.

As Andy walks by his wife, she grabs him by his neck scarf and says, “But will I ever see the night when you tell it like it “OUGHT TO BE?!!”

I wish our world and its leaders spent more time working on how things ought to be instead of trying to protect the way things are and have been.

A long time ago a prophet by the name of Micah laid out how things ought to be in these words:

“He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?”

Would it not be wonderful to live in a world of the “OUGHT TO BE?!!”
