Many of us are wondering what in the world is happening to our world. Let us wonder no longer and take a verse from Dionne Warwick’s song of 1966. Happy Saturday.

What the World Needs Now
This is probably the shortest post ever, but I think we will all agree that what the world needs now is love. Happy Saturday.
Looking Out for Each Other
Should we still be looking out only for number one? Maybe the time has come to give a little thought to our fellow humans, whether they be family, friends, presidents, or the grocery store clerk.
What does it take to look out for others? A simple phone call to see if there is a need to be addressed; a well timed visit, following all health protocols of course; and a heartfelt prayer here and there when all else fails…or even when it doesn’t.
Scripture speaks to this growing concern in our world today. Perhaps we should take its advice to be sure that we are looking out for each other.
Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others. Philippians 2:4
Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others.1 Corinthians 10:24
Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you. Ephesians 4:32
Therefore encourage one another and build up one another, just as you also are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11
Life is Precious
When I wrote my book “My Precious Life” in 2014 I had heard this expression many times but didn’t pay much attention to its meaning. Now, as I watch what’s happening the world over, millions of people dying of the coronavirus, others succumbing to life’s natural cycle, it is hitting home just how precious life is.
Are we really living on a daily basis? Are we making the most of our days? Are we looking out for our friends, family, neighbor? Are we saying, “I love you” and then showing that love?
There is more to life than eating, sleeping, working and playing, and because life is precious we need to make sure we are truly living.
Today I am going to make a concentrated effort to really live. I don’t know what that will look like but will let God handle the details. Carpe diem!
Let Your Love Grow
The antidote to all things wrong in this world is love. What our topsy-turvy planet needs now is this antidote. So come on world, in the words of the Bellamy Brothers (1976) let your love grow…and grow and grow…
Here is a comment made by one listener: “I was listening to this in the store, had to come home and look it up.. it felt like the Holy Spirit came over me while it was playing…I love this.”
It Still Is
Just when I wonder why our world isn’t wonderful anymore, something from the past comes along to remind me it still is.
The Ages of Prayer
We are never too young or too old to pray. I was four years old when I learned to pray and am now eighty-three and still praying. Our world needs more people praying, young, old, and in between. Happy Tuesday.
Is There Any Hope?
In today’s world it seems things just go from bad to worse. The virus appears to ease off just to rear its head again in different parts of the globe. Violence and crime walk hand in hand; peaceful protests turn ugly; rulers bend the rules; fires, floods, ferocious winds and earthquakes ravish the earth. And we, the human race, ask, “Is there any hope?”
Scripture says, “For in hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.” Romans 8:24-25
The following song keeps me hopeful. Happy Sunday.
What the World Needs Now
How many would agree that our world is in a precarious position at this moment in time? With so much talk of working together and thinking of others, let’s also add a little bit more of what the world needs now. I can just hear you singing your heart out.
There Is Always Hope
Many of us are truly horrified with what’s going on in our world today. Revelation tells us that Jesus has a vision for our world and what it will be like. It may not be in your time or mine, but there is always hope. Happy Sunday.
