The news and social media focuses so much time and effort on the anger, sadness, deception and evil that exists in the world. There are just as many good and positive things happening in the world each day…we just don’t get to see it or talk about it as much. Don’t let what others like to focus on be your only perspective. Feed your mind and spirit by reading God’s Word and spend time in prayer. Look for the good and be the good that exists in the world. It does not have to be on the national news or go ‘viral’ to make a difference to at least one other person. Your life is a gift and you were made to be who you are by a loving God. Seek His plan for your life and look to be the good in your daily walk. May God’s grace and mercy be with you.
“Finally, all of you, live in harmony with one another, be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble. Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult, but with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.”
1 Peter 3:8-9
