Beautiful sunrise this morning seems to be a reminder that no matter what happened yesterday, today will always come around. It’s hard, sometimes, to realize that our immediate problems today will eventually become yesterday’s memories and nothing more. There seems to be so much doom and gloom in the world today, so many people who are convinced that the world will end if things don’t go the way they want them to.
Yet in spite of it all the sun keeps rising every morning, the country is still intact, the world did not come to an end.
I think our priorities are so backward these days. We all seem so focused on winning that we forget to live. I see it everywhere this morning, from sports to politics to business. Even the church across the street seems to be focused on winning more people to their congregation.
I have to ask – Is winning really all there is to life?
What about simply being good people and helping one another out. If we all focused even a tenth of the energy we spend worrying about winning this race or that contest on helping each other succeed wouldn’t we all win?
That is the world I long to see.
