If not now...when?

It is easy to come to the conclusion from most forms of media that the news is generally bad. Therefore, it is easy to become downhearted>>>discouraged>>>despondent>>>depressed.

But we are not as those who have no hope.

What would happen if we consistently thought like this?
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.  [Philippians 4:8]

What would happen if we consistently believed and acted on this?
There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus. [Galatians 3:28]

What would happen if we consistently lived like this?
A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.  [John 13: 34-35]
