If you think that the world is coming apart at the seams, it is not because your imagination is running out of control, it is more because life itself appears to have crashed for many people. What with the death and injury unleashed by the coronavirus pandemic around the world? Added to these are the internal contentions of individual nations brought about by lack, poverty, political and religious divisions, and the oppression of certain groups within certain geographical boundaries. Perhaps the best example here can be provided by the police brutality against African Americans in the United States, often resulting in a needless death at the hands of the police. It is not by accident that the Black Lives Matter protests have attracted support from all over the world. And for the first time, African Americans’ protests against injustice and oppression in the United States now have the support of all groups and demographics in the country. Truth is everyone’s life is beginning to matter and should matter.
Is it still true then to say that the world is at a standstill, like there is no progress? We, the people of the world, are at a point of a great movement forward. A phenomenon unleashed by the police killings of African Americans, and supported by other nations and their people, who believe that injustice and oppression are not the ways to serve any group of people. This is in agreement with God’s Word and truth, and will prevail!
