School shootings, discrimination, unemployment, and other depressing stories—why even watch the news? Maybe we are at the end of a short rope and we just need a knot to hang on to. But let’s not give up so quickly!
Though Jesus’ time on earth was short, He lived it fully so we could better understand the kingdom of heaven. Each day, He did the work of His Father. After all, He had tasted heaven, and He knew how vastly different this earth had become from what God had intended. He knew that life itself could be much more as well, so He led by example.
