If you are looking for bad news, you will find it. It seems that we are very good at taking note of all the pain and suffering in the world, but we never linger with Good news. It is as if we have become conditioned to let good news melt away and so then our plight becomes:
"....you will gaze upon the bad news. End of story!"
If this is our 'lot' in life, then it is little wonder that people become disillusioned with God.But this is not the message of Jesus. He comes to give us life in all it's fullness and to savour the sweetness of God's grace and love. So, perhaps we are looking in the wrong direction? “I can see how it might be possible for a man to look down upon the
earth and be an atheist, but I cannot conceive how a man could look up
into the heavens and say there is no God.”- Abraham Lincoln
