Have you ever wondered where the word ‘NEWS’ comes from? Possibly not, but it is a strange word if you think about it. Well a few years ago I was told what the word means. North – East – West – South… NEWS. What a simple way of understanding it. The news is gathered from all over the earth and the word reminds us of this.
Some of the things we read about in the paper and see on the television news is usually bad news – violence, extreme groups, murder, natural disasters, controversial issues. For your task today find out a bit more information on one of the news items and then pray about it.
Then it might be worthwhile to think of some good news you have heard…. and then give thanks to God for that.
