Divine Love’s summons

“Thanks, God, for this wonderful day!” Tulu, our tour guide in Turkey, loved to conclude each day with this sentiment. On hearing news of bombings and other brutalities in many places around the world, I often think of the striking difference between Tulu’s gratitude and the destructive intent of a suicide bomber. It’s a disturbing contrast, one I wrestle with in my daily prayers for the world.

The ruthless killings and persecutions facing people in many countries today are not dissimilar to the persecutions that were carried out under Saul’s command during Bible times. The book of Acts declares that Saul “breath[ed] out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord” (9:1).
