Putting Disaster in Perspective

Thinking about that earthquake that hit China yesterday, I think the casualty list is in the 10's of thousands now and counting since many are still buried. We have become so desensitized to constant streams of bad news that it's sometimes hard to put into perspective what we're talking about and getting a true vision of what's happening. One way to do that for the disasters we are seeing is to start counting from 1 to say 15,000. Each number represents a dead body. A soul that's passed over to the other side. 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 women, children, wives, husbands, teachers, students, firemen, doctors, people JUST LIKE YOU lost their lives in an instant yesterday, TENS OF THOUSANDS OF THEM, 111,112,113......11,285, 11286, 11287. What's the moral of this story? Not one of those people yesterday woke up saying to themselves..."today I'm going to die in a 7.9 magnitude earthquake" it just happened. Do you think the wickedness of our country has gone unnoticed by the Most High? Think that tens of thousands can't die in an earthquake where you live? Well, if you answered yes then that would make you just like the 20,000+ chinese who died yesterday. TIME IS SHORT, it certainly was for them was'nt it? WAKE UP...Grace and Peace
