I wrote this on January 20, 2009, Inaugural Day. I decided to post this today after witnessing struggles by people of goodwill.
“God’s purpose is greater than your pain, and he has a greater purpose than your problems” (Max Lucado, 2004).
A lifetime of struggles; what’s the greater good in that?
I often read and hear that there are reasons for our struggles; that we will be better for them. Well, when will the betterment begin? Do we struggle because of our choices or do we struggle because of our lot in life? Does it really matter how problems come about—we still struggle.
We struggle for the greater good. Some struggle because they choose to fight for the greater good of humankind; for social justice; to make this world a better place for all.
On this Inaugural Day, I appreciate those who struggle for the greater good. For those who struggled for the greater good gives me hope for a better tomorrow.
