As we’ve been watching the news recently, it seems the word of the hour is crisis.

It seems everywhere we turn, we hear that word. It’s a financial crisis. A political crisis. An international crisis. An environmental or spiritual crisis.

I came across an interesting fact recently. The Chinese word for crisis is composed of two symbols. They represent two words: danger and opportunity.

When we’re in the midst of all these crises, it’s tempting to focus on the danger. While it’s important to be aware of the danger, we must be even more keenly aware of the opportunities it brings!

God is allowing this world to be shaken a little today. Let’s prepare ourselves to be a means of peace and light and strength to those who are afraid. Let’s not grow weary in well doing because there’s so much work to be done!
