I Can't Believe the News Today



Here's how the song Sunday Bloody Sunday by U2 begins: "I can't believe the news today. I can't close my eyes and make it go away. How long? How long must we sing this song?" 

This song was written concerning a massacre and violence in Northern Ireland, the song itself released in 1983. And yet every time I hear this song I cant help but think that it was written about today, yesterday, tomorrow... Because the news tells us again and again that this world is falling apart. That is the main message that the "News" has for us. "Get a helmet folks, you're going to need it." 

What amazes me is not the tragedies that happen on a weekly basis. I'm amazed by the message of hopelessness that is barraging us. Get on social media and every bit of bad news is echoed by everyone with a keyboard. Nothing is safe: politics, economics, gender battles, legal issues. It'a ALL there. 

"I can't believe the news today. I can't close my eyes and make it go away." 

What we can do is love. That doesnt make the bad news go away... but it begins healing the scars that form. 

Want some good news? Love. Love shifts. Love moves. Love builds. 

Love. 

1 Corinthians 13: 1 - 3 1If I could speak all the languages of earth and of angels, but didn’t clove others, I would only be a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.2If I had the gift of prophecy, and if I understood all of God’s secret plans and possessed all knowledge, and if I had such faith that I could move mountains, but didn’t love others, I would be nothing.3If I gave everything I have to the poor and even sacrificed my body, I could boast about it; but if I didn’t love others, I would have gained nothing.
