Today I heard a news story on the radio about this elderly Chinese woman who had been released from a prison where she had completed a 2-year sentence. Evidently she had been imprisoned and tortured because of her Christianity.
I just had one of those moments where I wanted to hang my head in shame.
When I'm down in the dumps, in order to soothe my selfish-self, I say to myself somewhere in the world today, someone lost their job, OR somewhere in the world today, someone lost a child, OR somewhere in the world someone was given a terminal diagnosis today, OR somewhere in the world today, someone....
Today, I was reminded that somewhere, no actually it's MANY PLACES in the world, people are being tortured for the sake of Jesus Christ.
There are bigger things in life than diets and exercise. There are bigger things in life than Democrats vs. Republicans. There are more important issues than the cover of Vogue Magazine.
God bless you, little Chinese lady. May you sleep well tonight.
