Life often has a way of treating us pretty bad. Last week I saw a magpie being pecked to death by a group of crows.
Immediately after a cat sprang on to it (it couldn’t fly at this point) I watched to make sure it hopped safely up a tree, only to be told later that it will probably die anyway.
For me this was the epitome of the suffering that is currently so rampant in this world. A suffering that we seem to all have made contact with, some more directly then others.
It’s a well-known proverb that all good things must come to an end. However for the faith believe Christian I guess the inverse is also true, that suffering, malice and crime will all one day be cut off too. If there’s anything worthy to be hoped for; the day when Jesus returns, surely there’s no better anticipation.
Jesus has promised to return, and what’s better to hope for?
Lord help me to stay faithful, and in happy hope as I wait for your return.
