I’m often amazed at the depth of disdain that seeps through the annals of our global society. I cringe at the disregard for fellow humans. I’ve gasped at the lack of kindness; but, I am not without hope. Though many of us have our fair share of shortcomings, and some are not even regretful, I believe that there are still many opportunities for us to right many societal ills.
When I think of the faithfulness of the One I love the most, I am reminded of the gifts with which we’re entrusted. I look at this picture of my tiniest son, who made five years old last week. I think about his innocence, his blank canvas, his openness to understanding and instruction – and I realize that like many others, we can teach him and those like him how to do better than we’ve done.
I am grateful not only for God’s forgiveness in my own life, but in the lives of others who resolve to live in a way that shows we care for others. While I don’t pretend to have an explanation for everything, I am thankful for His grace and undying comfort towards me. I’m thankful for His many blessings, especially for the ones who have been given to me that I might be an example for them and teach them to touch others’ lives with the kindness that comes from Christ.
I contend that all is not lost. People are lost, and so was I. Nevertheless, there is a Hope that transcends every solution offered by man – and in this Hope, I have found everything I need.
