Have you ever heard the phrase “now more than ever” used to emphasize what is needed in the moment that seems to be dire or insurmountable? I admit I use it to make a case for something that I feel is warranted for any serious situation. Now more than ever we need to be saved from ourselves or now more than ever you need this thing that can make your life so much better. Perhaps now more than ever people require this or that.
My point is that we will always have situations where now more than ever is what makes sense in life. One thing I hope is that this won’t become so cliché it loses its intended meaning. More than ever is one of those things that we say when there is nothing else we can say to get our point across and to create a sense of urgency. There is value in this statement and I hope it doesn’t become cheapened the more we use it.
