The Killings

 

Sydney HarbourEvery day there are thousands of people worldwide being killed, slautered or persecuted to death.

Each person has a mother and father; probably brothers and sisters and other family members who care and love them.

As a result, much of the world is in a constant state of grieving and yet at the same time there are terrorist groups planning mass destruction of innocent people by whatever means they can find at their disposal.

Drug syndicates, interested only in making money, couldn’t care less about the deverstation their products will have on the lives of the end users.

Maybe the levels of the world’s oceans are rising, not because of the hole in the ozone layer, but because of the tears being shed by the families of lost loved ones.

The Good Book says we should love one another and you don’t have to be a Christian to realise that isn’t such a bad idea. Maybe we could even try and live out the words of John Lennon when he wrote, “Give peace a chance”.

Meanwhile, here in Australia, we complain about our taxes, interest rates and water restrictions. The Good Book also says, “To those to whom much has been given, much will be expected”

Maybe it wouldn’t hurt us to chew on that for a bit.
