There is a great deal of misinformation being circulated these days. As bad as we think our time is today in relation to health scares in our country, it is not nearly as bad as has existed during the plague of 1918. Yet because of the events that have taken place in the last four or five days, I am compelled to talk about our need as a society to know and understand love – love for human life and love and respect for one another as citizens. This can only begin when we recognize the existence of absolutes. There is absolute good as there is absolute evil. Just as there is absolute right and wrong, there is the origin of love and all that is right. We need to discover the blessing of love.
Those who have loved deeply and lost understand the value and importance of love and walking in love. They understand a person could possess all manner of skill in life, but if they lack love, they are nothing but a noisy cymbal. Love patiently endures and is kind; it does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful. Love does not rejoice at wrongdoing but rejoices in truth. We would do well to pray for our nation and world as we do our family and friends. Many are living in sorrow today because of lives lost and prosperity lost because of shutdowns and now because of anarchy. Too many today lack love and humility. Pray that more will learn these character traits.
