TYPHOON

Leave a comment

O Lord Our God,
what about the people
in the Philippines?
Were they worse sinners
than the rest of us,
that a typhoon
should kill so many of them?
We like to feel that we
have control over our lives.
Are you trying
to tell us something
through this disaster, Lord?

1 Kings 19:11b:
Now there was a great wind, so strong that it was splitting mountains and breaking rocks in pieces before the Lord, but the Lord was not in the wind.

Luke 13:4:
(Jesus said) “Or those eighteen who were killed when the tower of Siloam fell on them—do you think that they were worse offenders than all the others living in Jerusalem? No, I tell you; but unless you repent, you will all perish just as they did.”
