Good News

As sad as it is, there’s a lot of disturbing and disturbed people on the planet. The mainstream news feeds on these disordered individuals. The news itself is disturbed. The mainstream news programming is aimed at the negative.

If you only look at the mainstream media for what’s going on with the world you stand a good chance of losing hope. The mainstream news is a narrow focus to the world.

Goodness is mundane to the nay sayers, so it doesn’t make the mainstream news. Somehow our culture cultivates bad news.

I think most of us prefer good news.

Many of us want to know what’s going on with the world. It’s normal to give a hoot about others and our environment. 

Why doesn’t uplifting acts of good get more news coverage. Good news has healing properties. We ALL need healing. None of us NEED bad news. Healing comes from good news!

We can all use a little less bad news and a lot more Hope!

Good guys

I believe with all my heart that the majority of people across the planet, humbly love their neighbors. And the mainstream news simply predominately reflects the powerful and selfish minority.

If we love others, we respect them and help them when needed. Simple as that!

Good guys don’t let bad guys win!

We benefit greatly from pursuing God’s love. If we obey His commands we spiritually thrive.

“You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.” Galatians 5:13 NIV

What would any of us do differently if we found out that Christ is returning to Earth tomorrow morning? Of course we’re not going to know ahead of time, but His return is the death of evil and the end of our fallen world.

Would you be grateful or worried?

“Love does no harm to a neighbor. Therefore love is the fulfillment of the law.” Romans 13:10 NIV

“On that day they will say to Jerusalem, “Do not fear, Zion; do not let your hands hang limp…” Zephaniah 3:16 NIV

By Ed Caldwell

Except for some unavoidable honey-dos, I pretty much goof off for a living now. My last career job was designing internet operating circuit boards along with a distinguished team of engineers, managers and support personnel. Prior to that I was an electronics technician evolving into circuit board design in the defense industry working with tactical missile systems. My first career job was a professional artist. During my younger years I worked many odd jobs beginning at age nine with a newspaper delivery route.
