I found myself thinking over the last few weeks about a post I saw over at Mary Brack's blog. She has been making a book of lists and one of them was 'What makes me cry' which is the one that had me thinking. I find myself crying when I read news items or see films where people honour one another, serve one another, and act for the good of each other.
I come back to the passage in Philippians 2 that talks about looking not only to our own interests and counting others as more significant than ourselves. I worked out that when I see this happening in the world, that's what makes me cry: seeing small snippets of the world how it is meant to be. Small acts of selflessness, service, and humility.
The world could use more humility.
