Only Get Worse

I was speaking with a child advocate today about the struggles children and parents have in their lives. This person sees the worst side of families and still chooses to do everything she can to help. I talked with a fellow staff member this morning and she was lamenting the state of our world and the lack of shelter and care for the homeless and poorest among us. As we discussed the problem she expressed frustration at the inability to make a lasting change with meager resources.

Our world has many problems to solve, broken lives to mend, souls to rescue. Read or listen to the news and you’ll soon become jaded or overwhelmed. It isn’t too cynical to wonder; “is it too late, are we beyond saving?” I don’t have the knowledge or wisdom to answer those questions but I do know the world will only get worse if we stop trying to make it better.
