I Thessalonians 5:1-3

Now concerning the times and the seasons, brothers and sisters, you do not need to have anything written to you. For you yourselves know very well that the day of the Lord will come like a thief in the night. When they say, ‘There is peace and security’, then sudden destruction will come upon them, as labour pains come upon a pregnant woman, and there will be no escape!

 

Reflection by Janet Derby

 

We don’t own tomorrow. We know that, and yet, we habitually go through our days as though we do. It often takes a shocking situation to make us realize once again that life is precious though there are reminders all around us. As we approach the 5th anniversary of the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting tomorrow, we are still reeling from the shooting at Sutherland Springs Baptist Church. While we cannot become consumed by these events, they can help us to appreciate life and our loved ones.

 

Prayer:

God of All Times and Seasons, help us to not be complacent, but to live each day to its fullest. Amen.
