Two different worlds

The Word tells us to be "in" the world, not "of" the world.  Does that mean we separate ourselves from reality?  Of course not.  But perhaps we need to mix more of God's reality with our own?

"A teenager found on road
after she was raped..."
"Man takes seven hostages
after he's escaped..."
"Defense contract embezzlements.
Billions to involve..."
"Americans held overseas.
Still as yet to solve..."

Seven people baptized in
revival Saturday!
Mr. Smith is finally back,
awhile he's been away!
The county fair says everyone
is free for this year's run!
Amy & Matt are marrying!
The Meadors have a son!

Now tell me, which of the above
is glorified and rife?
Why can we not, instead, exalt
the blessings in this life?
Why do our appetites so crave
the morbid, violent news?
On our faces let us fall
that HE would change our views!
