On the 100th day of the COVID-19 global pandemic, I would offer to you that the world has learned a few lessons.
This list is hardly exhaustive, but it’s nevertheless irrefutable – at least from my perspective:
1. We are not in control. God is.
2. Humans are frail, fragile – and resilient.
3. Because of sin, bad things happen to everyone.
4. No matter how dark the night, the sun rises in the morning.
5. Planned Parenthood isn’t essential – it’s a fraud.
6. If you’re serious about preserving life, you can’t support killing life in the womb.
7. In “normal” times, we don’t spend enough time with our families.
8. When our loved ones are dying, we always want more time or wish we had spent what time we had with them more wisely.
9. As a whole, we’re woefully unprepared for a rainy day.
10. We shouldn’t wait for a crisis to reach out to our neighbors.
11. You’ll never regret time spent with your children.
12. Money matters, but money can’t buy the things that matter most.
13. Today’s heroes include first responders, medical personnel and grocery workers.
14. The little things (coffee with friends, a ballgame on a summer night) are actually big things.
15. Very bright people, with God’s help, will find a cure to the virus.
16. Prayer will always be our greatest weapon. “He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed” (Job 5:9).
17. No matter how tough the struggle, believers can enjoy “strength for today and bright hope for tomorrow.”
