Sometimes we are asked, "What would you like first - the good news or the bad news?" While we may not want to hear bad news, we sometimes have to hear the bad news. However, what we do with the news can make a difference. As Bill Gates says, "Convert bad news to good news."
We can take the bad news that we hear and we can call on God to guide us. As we listen to and follow God, we can spread the Good News. We can be the ones that proclaim peace and bring good tidings. We can let others know of the salvation available through Jesus Christ and its life changing effects. The Good News of our salvation and the glory of God can help us overcome bad news by converting it into good news!
Turn to God and allow Him to turn bad news into good news!
Thank You for sending Your Son to turn the bad news of my sin into Good News. Help me to always remember to turn to You for help overcoming bad news. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
