Larger concerns

Life these days can seem pretty complicated, requiring careful thought. We need to plan wisely. Perhaps, as a result, most of us spend much of our time concerned about the issues in our own lives— our finances, families, jobs, and so forth. The universal love that Christ Jesus taught often gets little of our time. Not as much thought is given to the wider and deeper issues facing the world.

This does not mean we are all ignorant of world problems or that we're not often concerned about them. On the contrary, many people around the world are probably better informed today than ever before, and they may feel apprehensive about such issues as nuclear disarmament as well as compassionate toward the homeless and starving.
