This world is blundering on in a morass of sin and sorrow and sadness and suffering. Here and there, there are lights shining in the darkness, and, please God, may we be one of these lights. A missionary came home from an overseas field, having been away for five years, and spoke, describing how he had led one man to faith in Jesus Christ, but only one man. The Chairman announced at the close of that 'Missionary Evening' that he would rather have been able to do that. Leaders in particular need understanding and comfort and encouragement as they serve and lead with integrity and honesty using whatever skill Almighty God has given them. Of course, over these most recent years, there have been leaders in the financial and economic and banking world, and their misbehaviour and mismanagement have cause appalling trouble and distress worldwide!
