During the days of Jesus, a tower fell in the city of Siloam and killed 18 persons. The story no doubt made the news, because the Lord used it in His teaching about the importance of repentance.
“ Or those eighteen on whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them, do you think that they were worse sinners than all others who dwelt in Jerusalem? I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.” Luke 13.4-5
This is a good thing to consider because we are being informed daily about the tower which fell in Miami Beach and over 100 people are still missing and about a dozen dead. Like our Lord was, so are we. The sadness is shared as we feel bad about the loss of life and destruction of property.
But, as Jesus said, anyone can experience some kind of tragic event. No one is immune. The question is, have you repented? Are you saved? Are you free from your sins? If not, one can perish just as well
