There are a lot of things wrong in the world today. If you focus too much on the negative then, you become depressed and lose hope. I think many of us have. However, today, I saw something that gave me hope. Consider this quote from Lifesite

Nearly 30,000 men attended the 2021 Promise Keepers Men’s Conference last weekend in Dallas, Texas with hundreds of churches hosting even more men online.

The two-day event aimed to bring a positive message that would inspire transformation and empower men so they could return home equipped to lead their families, communities, and country. On Thursday, Promise Keepers (PK) tweeted, “God did some amazing things” and that was only the first day. 

Day 1 was unforgettable.

30,000 men focused on God is a good thing because at the very least, it may inspire men to live up to their paternal responsibilities and that is a fix for many of society’s problems. Ponder these stats.

As a Christian, I am heartened to see this.

As an American citizen I am overjoyed to see this.

It gives me hope for the future of my country.

Hallelujah.
