Flourishing in troubling times

We live in troubling times, from corona viruses to computer viruses, financial uncertainty to political instability, from physical war to cyber war. On top of that, we also face relational, spiritual, and physical struggles in the course of life. Still, the Bible gives us hope that not only can we survive, but flourish, grow, multiply, and bear fruit. And it's all possible because of one great promise: "I have overcome the world!"

Shake it off

There comes a time when the right thing to do is to just shut things down and move on. This shouldn't happen out of frustration or impatience, though. The wise man is able to persevere through the struggle because he trusts that God has a purpose in it.
