What's in God's nature

I remember a photo that ran on the Home Forum page of The Christian Science Monitor a number of years ago. The picture was of an African woman washing some items in a river, with her baby in a wrap around her back. The baby was sleeping comfortably as her mom worked. The caption underneath the photo was an African proverb that read, “It is not in the nature of the mother’s back to let the baby fall.”

I’ve remembered that picture whenever I’ve been tempted to believe there is suffering in the world that can’t be healed. Our Mother God never lets us fall. God’s nature is all-loving and compassionate. And as God’s children we can expect to feel that love and compassion in our lives and to express those same qualities. And I’ve found that praying for the world helps make me feel closer to others and reminds me I have a role to play to bring healing wherever error seems to be.
