cartoon: 2 rooms
This cartoon was provoked by something I saw on Facebook yesterday. Someone was thanking God for healing someone. They said something like, "God is awesome! We serve a God who always answers prayer!" Or something like that. I immediately thought of all the people who simply couldn't say that. At least not now. This picture popped into my mind of the two realities that can be experienced in adjacent hospital rooms: one has just lost someone and is in complete anguish; the other has regained someone and is ecstatic. I'm not arguing whether one is right and the other is wrong. I'm just suggesting that sometimes we are grossly unaware of the pain and suffering of this world for most people. Sometimes including ourselves.
