“This is a test of the Emergency Broadcast System. Broadcasters, in your area have developed this system to keep you informed in the event of an emergency. This is only a test.“
Our nation faces a test this week. This is an emergency.
- Tomorrow, the people the Alabama will decide who they are as human beings and whom they will serve. My hope is that the voters of Alabama will choose integrity over politics.
- Thursday is the 5th Anniversary of the shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School. Many of us thought that the killing of mostly white elementary school children by a mentally ill person would be the last straw, bringing more sensible gun laws. (It hasn’t made much of a difference when children of color are killed.) We thought it would make a difference when country music fans are killed by a mentally ill man shooting from a high rise hotel. (So far – nothing.) My hope is that our leaders in Washington and throughout the country fear God more than the NRA and do something.
God has given us choices. Many of us have more choices than others. I believe that a time will come when we will face our Maker and be told if we’ve passed the test or not.
Yes, there is grace. But God also calls us to be obedient to the message of Jesus.
When people show you who they are, believe them.
