Muslims Murder Someone (yawn)
It’s another day of waking up to “Breaking News Alerts” about muslims on a killing spree. (How does this obvious thing qualify as news?)
But there are more victims than those reported
The news consuming public are victimized, too. Our minds, instead of freely working on solutions to common everyday issues, are now captured, obsessing over a host of threats, unable to engage in creative thinking. (This is one of the primary objectives of terrorism, to paralyze the public with fear.)
Well NO MORE!
We have a better “Breaking News Alert”
“His love endures forever,” no matter what happens.
“…by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil— and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.”
– Hebrews 2:14-15
Benefit of faith: We can go on with our lives as if these circus clowns didn’t exist, and if the “worst” happens, so what? Absent from the body is present with the Lord. Instead of the endless hand wringing we see on the news, we can concentrate on our ongoing personal responsibilities, which does include the crushing of islamic extremism, marxism, lawlessness (like MS-13), and even…
ordinary things like dishes, laundry, gardening, our jobs, and…
“doing justice, loving mercy, and walking humbly before our God.”
So they stole the news cycle for a day. Let’s not also surrender to them any of the real estate in our minds. We have better breaking news:
His Love Endures Forever.
