Daily Moravian Text: Psalm 50:1-6
Last weekend while I was with my sister-in-law driving to Dearborn for a half marathon race, I found myself wondering where everybody else is going. What were all these other cars doing out at 6:00 AM on a Sunday morning? Everybody has a story of where they are traveling, and it just kind of blows me away that there are so many people in this world moving around. And that is just in one city. All over the country, all over the world, people were doing the same thing at the same time. It is a reminder to me how big our world really is.
I recently had dinner with Beth Landis, a former member of our youth group and she was telling me about her trip to Guatemala in January. One of the things she commented on was how going there opened up her eyes to a completely different part of the world and how sometimes in America, we get tunnel visioned about our own issues and we forget about all the other places in the world that are struggling, usually a lot more than we are.
I suppose it is easy to remained focused on only the world that we see. We just don’t have exposure to so many of the world’s issues on a regular basis. But it is a good thing that God does. Psalm 50 talks about how God speaks from the rising of the sun to the place where it sets. God has His eyes on our entire world. His love spreads everywhere. And I do think it is probably a wise thing for us to spend a little more time trying to do the same as well.
