Healing the World Begins with Me

The brutal, senseless act in Orlando recently has once again brought hatred to world thought.  As I first watched the news with disbelief, then sadness and anger, I turned off the television to pray.  More Love is what is needed, not more anger and hatred.  Then I began to think, “What can I do?”

It suddenly became clear as I thought of a neighbor who had put up a fence I didn’t like.  Then, I had attended a meeting where someone disagreed with my opinion.  Now, I’m not saying I hate these people, but I saw unkindness in my thought, rather than unconditional Love, which I need to practice more and more.

In Isaiah 41:10, it states, “Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God.  I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”  With God, all things are possible; alone I can do nothing.
