I come to you today to address a sad state of affairs. If you would, please take a quick look at this article to become up to date with the situation. I am not going to rehash what is being said on every news source today. But I do wish to express my disgust as I'm sure every sane person out there must feel.
Those who have left this life we can no longer help. The injured and the hundreds that will remain traumatized for life are the ones that need our help and prayers. I readily admit that I'm Christian and am quoting Christian scripture. If I were familiar with the Quran of the Muslim faith or the scripture of the Hindu's I would post something from them also. If you are familiar with these, or other texts, please feel free to post verses of comfort and strength in my comments section. For my Atheist friends you are welcome to post thoughts and well wishes.
To Those Who Offend
Luke 17:1-2 (NKJV)
1 Then He said to the disciples, "It is impossible that no offenses should come, but woe to him through whom they do come!
2 It would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were thrown into the sea, than that he should offend one of these little ones.
To Those In Need Of Comfort
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 (NKJV)
3 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort,
4 who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
My Fervent Wish
May those in need of comfort receive it in abundance.
May those in need of forgiveness receive it in humble repentance.
For those who are standing in guilt without a repentant heart, may God have mercy on their soul.
