Reflection of the week
Posted in Faith
The daily newspaper, containing all the good and bad news of the people of the world, is delivered with a thump in the morning dew of the front garden. There is the usual menu of violence, corruption and natural disasters.
My Jesus, my Saviour – our Saviour – was not given to one nation or for one race, but for the world. He was given for a world in which there is much suffering, as we see daily in our newspapers and on our televisions.
“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him may not perish but have eternal life.” – John 3:16
Lord, let me not forget that the world into which I go this day is the world you loved enough to die for. I pray for the people, at home and abroad, who must begin to rebuild their lives after disaster and trauma, or who are dealing with violence. Amen.
