We tend to see one the of major problems in this world as there being too much evil in it. We look to crime, dictators, wars, greed, violence and so on, to prove our point. However, what if the problem were not too much evil in the world but too little good? This might seem to be just the flip side of the coin, but there is one major difference. There is very little that we can do about the evil that there is in the world, but we can all put more goodness into it. A smile, a compliment, a kind word, a helping hand, a listening ear, a comment not said, a phone-call made, a meal cooked, a confidence kept, a hug given, a deed done and so on. All these small things go a long way towards adding goodness into our world. If we take the power of goodness seriously our world will be a much better place.
