Old Town, Neon Sign

 

 
The cities of China are rapidly developing. We are in the midst of road upheaval in our own town- the streets being torn up everywhere while they work on putting in a subway.

The picture above is from a peaceful and smaller town hours away. Still keeping the ancient architecture, yet plopping a neon advertisement sign right on it! When we first came to China it was all bicycles and oxcarts. Here you see the electric scooter parked in front.

Some people have opposed modernization and would rather be stuck in the past.

This is a great example of retaining China’s cultural distinctive while advancing with modern progress.

How about your faith and understanding of God’s Word? Are you stuck in the past, only able to function in the old traditions? There are yet fresh revelations to be had. An expectation of this will make your Bible reading more exciting.

Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.

(Matthew 13:52)
