There are so many people in this world who are good, kind, and loving. I’m so very thankful for this! I find myself cherishing phrases like:
Salt of the earth
Always a kind word
Has your back
Will do anything for you
Feeds your soul
Gives you the shirt off their back
This is what makes me believe that “good triumphs over evil.” Call me an optimist, but my experience with those engaged in this great endeavor called philanthropy are very likely to share my view.
You see, we have the privilege of seeing the good side of the human heart. Yes, there’s plenty of misery to go around. So many are in mourning, and we are in a time when so much suffering abounds. But there’s enough love, hope, and generosity in this world to soothe, comfort, and lift the pain so suffering cannot prevail!
And the simple fact is, you can’t stop the spread of genuine human kindness! It’s found in:
Every family, clan, and tribe
Every city, town, and village
Every political party
Every dark corner
Every shining hill
At this critical moment in history, I am especially thankful to know we are made in the image of God!
