How is your new year going so far?
Having nearly completed the first week of a new year, and taking a quick look at the news it would seem that the world is frantic about the debate between Mr. Trump and Mr. Kim about whose is bigger. The big news out of Washington is the latest kiss and tell book of intrigues and gossip… and that January is a cold month, due to Global Warming.
Nothing much has changed… but then what would we expect?
That’s the state of the tired old world we live in, but it needn’t be the we live, for we are called to a higher purpose. I don’t say this to mean that we are somehow better than our neighbor− we aren’t. Yet we have a hope that is not of this world and our citizenship is in Heaven, and our standard is love. We need not indulge ourselves in the nonsense that surrounds us; instead we can shine the light of His Word into the darkness. We can be the shining beacons of His love to those around us, we can bring hope to those who need it− yes, opportunity knocks.
So… how is your new year going so far?
