The Love of God Still Rules the Day
I tried to read the Sunday morning paper, but was so overcome with the horrors reported from all over the world, that I had to put the paper down. I sat, wondering why we are so focused on telling each other about all the negative things that happen in every distant place around the globe. Certainly the loving and positive things going on in the world far outweigh the negativity…”Dozens killed in a mall in Kenya”, but how many children were born, and lives saved through the miracle of modern medicine? “Assault on Funeral in Iraq Kills 96″…but how many families gathered and shared their love for their deceased? Millions of children are starving all over the globe, but where is it reported that so many more millions were fed, clothed, bathed and put to sleep by loving parents in safe homes?
Following media reports, would have us think that hate, chaos, and negativity rule the day. However, when we think of all the love and kindness that goes on around us every day, and understand that it happens all over the world, then it is easy to see that the love of God still rules the day. That’s the Good News!
Thank you God, for the love that you have placed inside us. Let us continue to know its source and share its power. Amen
