As I opened up my browser today, I was reminded that we are waiting for Christ's second coming. Stories like this are happening on Christmas Day. Things are not perfect here- so many things are going wrong in the world, yet still we are commanded to be joyful now.
May we be the most joyful people on earth today, in spite of the suffering around the world. In our joy, may we pray for and help those who are suffering, so that people who do horrible things, even people who plan to be suicide bombers, can instead hear the Good News.
Wishing today that everyone celebrated Christmas.
