Yesterday I avoided reading news websites that I normally view for blog posts. I avoided checking the stock market. I checked my Twitchy app headlines and saw the normal bi-partisan hyperbole, especially after President Trump gave his speech last night on the Wuhan Virus. Heaven forbid, he mentioned it originated in China so now he’s being called a xenophobe, racist, etc., etc.
The progressive media will NOT abandon their hysterics and politics for ONE minute. They have only ONE agenda. But you can spend some time this morning abandoning THEM.
I decided to check out some Twitter timelines of a few of my favorites and came upon this tweet by Mollie Hemingway: “A Christian Attitude in Times of Widespread Sickness and Rumor of Death.”
From the post: “When sickness and death test the foundation of Christian trust in God’s mercy, the Scriptures teach a four-fold attitude of faith, prayer, compassion, and mercy.”
The post is a quick read and includes the following excerpts:
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”
“Put on then, as God’s chosen ones, holy and beloved, compassionate hearts, kindness, humility, meekness, and patience.”
“Once our hearts have been set at peace, we can consider how to best serve our neighbors. There is a two-fold danger of recklessness on the one hand and debilitating fear on the other. The Christian avoids both by faith.”
Read the whole post here.
Faith, prayer, compassion and mercy are very much needed today.
Ignore the media, news, Twitter and take a deep breath. And remember that we are all in this together. With prayer and calm heads this too shall pass and together we can weather the storm.
