Thank God for medications!

I was in Singapore recently and needed some medicine. I picked up some Panadol, which contained something called paracetamol. Turns out paracetamol is acetaminophen (e.g., Tylenol); outside of North America, it's called paracetamol.

Who knew?!

The Panadol was manufactured in Ireland. Packed in Australia. And then shipped to Singapore, with writing in English and Chinese.

We live in a global village, at least as far as manufacturing and trade goes, and those provinces, states, and nations that prosper will be those that think globally.

Thank God for medicines, part of his common grace that he has provided for us to discover and use for our benefit.

Next time you ease your weary joints with a bit of meds, remember how good and loving our Creator is.

"All I have needed, thy hand has provided..."

And that's the way the Ball bounces.
