What kind of world do you want to live in?

Do you want to live in a world where:

  • We shut ourselves away from friends and neighbours because we too frightened to go outside;
  • We would rather cross the road and ignore someone in need, rather than reach out and them because we don’t want to get involved;
  • Men kill other men simply because of the colour of their skin, their nationality or their religion;
  • God has been forgotten, and only the minority still believe in Him.

Or do you want to live in a world where:

  • Where everyone automatically reaches out to help others in need, without a second thought for themselves;
  • Everyone lives in peace, tolerant of other’s beliefs – where we all get on with one another, regardless of the colour of their skin, their nationality or their religion;
  • We feel safe to be out of our homes, on our own, no matter the time of day or night;
  • War and conflict are words from a past life, and are no longer needed in the world we now live in;
  • Everyone believes in God’s existence and there is hope for the future of this world.

I’m sure the second scenario is much more appealing to us all than the first one, but what can we do to make the second scenario become reality?

In 1 Chronicles 1:18 we read

Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done.

So it’s up to us folks, we need to proclaim His name so that we tell everyone we meet how great God is; how much He loves and cares for each of us; how we can always rely on God to be with us, even through very tough times.
