Our news networks seem to report the glass is half empty rather than half full. Are they to be faulted or are we to be faulted? News survives by the market size of audience they draw and keep. Human nature seems to prefer bad news over good. Good news does not travel as rapid or broadly as bad.
Those who follow Jesus Christ bring good news to a world that desperately needs good news, but prefers bad.
Romans 10:15-16 And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!”16 But not all the Israelites accepted the good news. For Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed our message?”
Today, accept the good news of Jesus and tell others the good news!
