There are things in the daily news that are cause for us to be concerned. Whether it's local or worldwide, the picture can look quite grim. If we get too caught up in the affairs of the world, we can become depressed or angry. The television drama has become so incendiary that they stop at nothing, just to try and make their point. How is it that we have gotten so far from the greatest commandments? Our world will continue to fall apart unless we get back to loving God and loving people. You cannot love God if you don't love others, they're impossible to separate. We have so little time on this earth to do what God has called us to do that it is ridiculous for us to waste so much of it being divisive or even buying into the divisiveness. We must be more tolerant of others and love them despite their view. If you have any hate in your heart for people, you cannot love God!
For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison. 2 Corinthians 4:17
