Sometimes it takes huge inconveniences to get mankind to slow down and consider that the world doesn’t revolve around our every move. The hurricane that moved though the Southern coastal states last week made that perfectly clear by stopping mankind in his tracks. Airlines, car’s, nightlife, businesses, state governments, and everything else came to a screeching halt.
And guess what? A slow down will occur again by another natural or man-made disaster. But the granddaddy of them all will be the Judgment! (Acts 17:31). On that great day, all men will stop their busy lives to stand before Jesus Christ and be judged for the deeds done in life (Romans 14:9-12; 2 Corinthians 5:10; Matthew 25:31-46).
So that storm taught us much, and we need to reflect on the fact that nothing keeps going uninterrupted (not even those energizer batteries) (1 Thessalonians 5:1-10; James 4:13-15; Luke 12:16-20).
