The Righteous and the Unrighteous

 

 

 

Matthew 5:45b He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.”

For Your sake we face death all day long: we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered. As recorded in the Gospel of Matthew, God causes the sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and unrighteous. It is tragic that adults are dying as the result of COVID-19, but little children are dying also. When a tornado or other earth disaster comes righteous die with unrighteous.

One personal example:

When Hurricanes Matthew and Irene came to Central Florida, as far as I know my house was the only one in the entire addition damaged; so I wondered if I was being punished.  My house is on a corner lot and has a fairly large back yard.  A park is in front of my house, and the house next to it is not as high as mine.  So my house was an ideal target!

Prayer thought: Father in heaven, thank You for Your loving protection. Although unworthy, You bless us in many ways, and we thank You in Jesus’ holy name. Amen
