In our hunt for rigteousness we forget what is good. “‘ I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” (Matt. 9:13) We forget what it means to survive, not live. We seek glory and riches at the expense of others. The saddest part? We glorify the evil, the things of this world. Our media is full of lies and contempt. We are Shocked when something is shown in a good light. As a whole those who are ‘good’ are ridiculed and made less. It appears we have forgotten to hope.
Mercy, not condemnation. Love not pity. Hope.
