I have always been convinced that there are more good people in the world than bad ones and it’s at times like this, during the outbreak of the Corona Virus, that it becomes evident.
Visits to elderly residents in care homes have recently been prohibited, so the management in one put out an appeal for people to send letters/ cards to them. They were inundated with support. My husband and I watched the television report last night and it was heartwarming. you can read about it here. I’m sure there will be many similar activities going on internationally and locally.
There have also been reports of people in Italy singing on their verandahs to encourage each other, and people standing on their balconies in Spain applauding hospital staff as they come and go.
Often, it’s during times such as this when the goodness of humanity really shows itself. Praise God!
So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.Isaiah 41:10 New International Version
Our Father, thank you that your light always shines through your people in times of suffering. Bless those who encourage others to keep strong and hopeful despite what is going on all around us. Thank you for those who look after us – all the medical workers who work tirelessly despite the ever increasing burden of care.
Thank you for your love and for teaching us how to love in such times as these.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
