What a change one day can bring! What evil and destruction a small group of evil men can create! How suddenly your world can change!
No one went out for a meal in Paris expecting such devastation to happen! You wouldn't go out if you thought it was so unsafe to do so.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the families who lost loved ones yesterday. They have suffered a massive loss which many of them may never get over.
My blog tonight will be short as I wouldn't want anyone to think that I'm taking advantage of the tragedy others have faced.
My prayer is that:
1. We will avoid the corrupting power of religion without God. The bible talks about 'pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction and to keep himself unspotted from the world,' James 1:27. In other words true religion is always for the good of the needy and the praise of God.
2. We will be reminded of the brevity of life and the importance of being ready to meet God.
