Genesis 22:11–19

Too many people have lost their joy and are suffering a chronic case of the “woe-is-me” syndrome. They've either forgotten or never learned that amidst the desert-like sadness, sorrow, tragedy, and grief of life, God has planted beautiful oases of joy, peace, celebration, and laughter. This shouldn't surprise us, though. The world in which we dwell focuses on the negative. Weather forecasters speak of a 30 percent chance of rain. Why not a 70 percent chance of sunshine? Movies and television delight in exposing the dirty, disgusting underbelly of society. Why not use media to paint a hopeful picture of how the world could be?
