There's always someone worse off.......

I was very moved watching this documentary on Netflix the other day. Most of us have a tendency to regard our lives as somehow more challenging or more significant than other people's. Occasionally we are caught  up short by a reminder that there is a big wide world out there where there is much sadness and suffering. And yet also much selfless bravery and 'common grace'.

We look for the day when 'everything sad will come untrue'. When justice will be everywhere experienced and there will be no more tears and sadness (The Book of Revelation chapter 21.4). Indeed we are told there that 'God himself will wipe away all eyes from our eyes'. An extraordinary tender and rather unexpected image to conjure with.

Most of us have Netflix these days. Go watch.
