I am really tired of writing about the many ills of our society, which too often gets me down. It is just too much. So, this week I will focus on some of the things we Christians can do to improve our living standards, starting with being kinder, more loving and more charitable to our neighbours and friends.
You are probably saying or thinking you alone cannot bring about the changes in society necessary for us to live in peace and harmony. I give you that. But if you go back to the beginning of space travel in the 60s, you will remember that famous phrase uttered by the late astronaut Glenn Armstrong when he first landed on the moon: “One small step for man; one giant leap for mankind.”
If we keep those words in our hearts then our good attitude and behaviour will in some way rub off on others, inspiring them to live godly lives, full of the Holy Spirit in imitation of Jesus Christ himself. If all of us, as people of one nation under God, become more accommodating, the entire community will benefit.
