Each passing day it becomes apparent that the world is changing so quickly. Aside from the natural things going on with our planet, some people are changing too. I’ve always had faith in God that He planted the very best in people; created in the image of the divine. Yet, God also gave us freedom of choice too.
We can choose right over evil, compassion over destruction, or beauty over ashes. It seems more people are choosing wrong over right lately. I wonder if they know they are mistaken. Do they care if they are destroying the inner working of their lives: therefore, others too? We are all connected. It’s like God created a great big puzzle out of us. We are all a part of the whole.
When one person harms someone, we are all harmed. Our lives have a ripple effect. The only way to counteract it is to create better at a faster rate. So, I am going to challenge you today. Go and see how much good you can do in this world today. Let the good things be the bigger wave! Let freedom be in the hearts of all of us. Let us heal one another.
There will always be those who do not care to create good in the world. Its called the pride of life in the Bible. We can tip the scales, though. We can make so much good that the prideful will shrink down and humble themselves. If we want better for our children and those after them, then we at least must try. We have a lot to lose if we do not.
Loving you from here,
