Fun fact: well, maybe not exactly a fun fact, but I bet you didn’t know that in one year, more people are bitten by another human (just in the city of New York) than people who get bitten by a shark (in the whole world). So you heard that right–less people worldwide are bitten by sharks than by humans…
Unfortunately, there are people in the world who are disturbed, who do awful things. But like sharks, the amount of bad and evil in our world is small. There is much more goodness and and much more light in this world. God triumphs over hate and over evil. See the good. There’s a good quote by a famous person named Mr. Rogers who said “
“When I was a boy and I would see scary things in the news, my mother would say to me, “Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping.”
9 Remember, I commanded you to be strong and brave. Don’t be afraid, because the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Joshua 1:9 (ERV)
Dear Lord, Thank you for being with me. Help me to see the good in life and in the world, not the negative. Amen.
