The Las Vegas Wakeup Call
When is this all going to end? When will the violence stop? When will people stop going crazy and killing each other?
In a previous blog I pondered whether or not God was trying to get our attention. Well if Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, and Jose, a couple of earthquakes and now this horrific killing in Las Vegas aren’t enough to get you stop in your tracks and evaluate your little life, then I don’t know what it will take.
We can get all excited about the political solution to this. We can tweet or post all we want about the evil of what happened in Las Vegas. The last I looked 58 people had died, maybe the number is more by now I didn’t look today.
527 people have been murdered in Chicago, IL so far this year
179 people have been murdered in New York, NY in the same time. (an historic low I’m told!)
94 people murdered in Milwaukee, WI where I live
According to this site over 6,000 people die every hour.
The loss of life is staggering!
“Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.” Psalm 90
Death wasn’t supposed to be a part of our existence. And because of Christ it doesn’t have to be. Number your days! Cherish the hours! And make every moment captive to Christ, your Savior.
