Who Would Have Thought?

Wild fires in New South Wales, flooding in Queensland and the ice breaking up on Lake Erie. And to various degrees, tragedy accompanied the events; people died and property was destroyed. And people act surprised, but there is a bit of a pattern here. It’s not like people are saying, “Wow wild fires in New South Wales, flooding in Queensland and the ice breaking up on Lake Erie, who would have thought?”

Those things happen on a fairly regular pattern in those places, like almost every year; maybe not to the extremes that they happened this year, but still.

And while the natural disasters may not have been able to have been prevented, some of the lives may have been spared if people had of heeded warnings. Instead, many waited until the last minute, not wanting to leave their possessions behind.

How often do people fail to heed the warnings about putting their spiritual life in order, thinking they have lots of time?

Not wanting to be a wet blanket, but the reality of death is even more certain than wild fires in New South Wales, flooding in Queensland and the ice breaking up on Lake Erie. Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
