Psalms 12;1-8 KJV. What are some examples of our culture exalting vile and wicked persons while putting down godly and faithful persons? What are my church and I doing about it?

John 12:42-50. Verse 46, what choices between light and darkness might Jesus be setting before me this very day?
Matthew 25:1-13. What steps can I take to be more of a prepared and watchful Christian, not an inattentive or last-minute one?
