Sept 6 – Are We As Safe as We Think

On August 6, many innocent people lost their lives in the train wreck, explosion and fire in Lac Megantic, Quebec. Now someone in our area, concerned about a possible similar disaster here, asks, “Are we are as safe as we think we are? Well, the future is unpredictable and uncertain. We do not know what is around the next corner any more than the victims in the Quebec disaster. Because of this, some take the attitude, “Eat, drink and be merry, for tomorrow we die.” Others believe that nothing could ever happen to them. It is the wise person who prepares for the unexpected and unpreventable by making one’s peace with God, and trusting Him for whatever the future may hold. With Jesus in our lives, we can pray the prayer of King-, “When my heart is overwhelmed, lead me to the rock that is higher than I.” That Rock is Jesus Christ. An old gospel song put it this way. “Many things about tomorrow, I don’t seem to understand. But I know who holds tomorrow, and I know who holds my hand. “
