WATCHING the TV news the other morning, the following comment was given from the World Health Organisation regarding the Coronavirus.
“The number of cases worldwide could go up or alternatively it could go down”. Very logical but also very confusing.
It reminded me of the children’s song about the Grand Old Duke of York and his 10,000 men, because when they were only half way up they were neither up nor down. No doubt very confusing to all those involved.
Because of the vast leaps in technology during the past two or three decades, life can be greatly helped but it can also be very confusing as well.
We live in a world with so many rules and regulations that daily living can become so confusing too.
We read in the Gospels Jesus Christ had many heated discussions with the Scribes and the Pharisees, the religious Leaders who had added many extra petty and ridiculous rules and regulations to the Ten Commandments.
Jesus was constantly at odds with them because these leaders were making it much more difficult for the people to live law-abiding lives.
Jesus brought a new dimension to life with the commandment, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and your neighbour as yourself”.
When the people, including many of the Leaders, took that on board, it made a total difference to their lives, as it can for us today.
