How to handle the responsibility of caring for a completely helpless human? One day at a time.
The world looks like it's losing its mind. It does make us worry. There have been protests in Hong Kong where police are shooting people. Insane legislation is being proposed in the U.S. Churches are being destroyed in China (even the sanctioned ones). I was reading the Psalms, and Psalm 146 stuck out to me.
I like stability. Where things stay mostly the same. Life isn't like that. In America, our personal storms tend to be existential. Other countries it's more survival, am I going to eat. I say all that because I'm watching storm clouds gather in my life and it's not existential. The waters are stirring with uncertainty.
Jesus just warned us about getting our priorities in line. Then Jesus said to us: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. For life is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn, yet God feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds!
