The Values of Christ… our Legacy!
For several months now, the global pandemic of COVID-19 has changed everything. It has wreaked havoc and unfortunately, has destroyed too many lives. Confined to our home, we watch helplessly and anxiously as this virus continues spreading and taking too many of our loved ones. Health guidelines and restrictions continue to be put in place. Overnight, schools, shops and churches have closed. A common feeling of uselessness and unproductivity has become widespread. Isolation, fear, anxiety, insomnia have become a part of our everyday lives. Our daily routines no longer exist. Even our loved ones have become distant and inaccessible to us. This crisis has quickly revealed many shortcomings and flaws in our societies, in who we are and in what we do.
We are Not in this Alone
At some point in time in our lives or another, we all inevitably face various types of hardship and difficulty. It might be a strained relationship with someone we care about, the loss of a job, a health crisis or serious illness, the death of a family member or loved one or any of a whole host of other kinds of trial and tribulation. As a rule, these are generally unpleasant experiences, and we would really prefer to not have to confront them. However, they are an inevitable part of life in this world. Ultimately, the question is not whether or not we have hardships or difficulties, but how we choose to deal with them when they present themselves that matters most.
