You have a fundamental choice to make about how are you going to respond to all the horrible things going on in the world. You can become cynical, filled with despair and give up. Or you can let God’s love – which just happens to be the most powerful force in the universe – shape you from the inside-out so it changes what you see, what you experience and what you want do even in the worst of situations. If you choose God, it won’t magically enable you to single-handedly fix the refugee crisis, stop your friend’s addiction, change the tone of political discourse in our nation or stop sex trafficking. But it will make you more joyful, compassionate, hopeful and generous. While that may not seem like much, it will make all the difference in the world – to you, to others and to God.
