It may be easy to become pessimistic because so much seems so hopeless. But there are literally more signs of God’s hope around you than you can count. Sick people are healed. Youth use their money to go on mission trips. Families reconcile after years of estrangement. People give millions of dollars to wipe out childhood hunger. So take the time to look for these signs of hope. Celebrate them when you find them. And then become a sign of God’s hope for someone for someone who needs it.
