As much as we hurt and try to understand Newtown's tragedies we must come to the realization that we may never will. And with fear to be misunderstood I think we could be missing a Godly opportunity.
We trust and know God's children are in great and much better place that this world could have ever offered them. And if we believe, we will see them again. We honor their lives and support each individual parent, community and a hurting Nation. But if we trust in Him and His word, then we must open our eyes to see and our ears to hear His calling. Is not Guns, is not children being at the wrong place at the wrong time or even that we pushed Him out of our schools. I trust that we have pushed Him out of our lives completely chancing the wrong things.
He tells us to love ones other and one other is mentioned abundantly in the Bible, but yet we do not do enough to care for the unwanted, the lost, the forgotten, the different, the sick, and all who are the least of these. If we want to hear His calling, here it is "care for my sheep the lost sheep" yes love our children, love one another and most important love God, for everything good and bad comes from Him, not because He does not love us but because He wants us to change our ways and return to Him.
I love my Father and for this reason I will honor the lost, but not only the dead but the least of these. I pray this makes sense and you would join the movement to make a difference and seek those in need of a savior. Someone told me once, "God place Himself in all of us to seek Him and if they don't come is their free will to choose not to" I say obviously our free will is not perfect for if it were there would not be a need for a Savior and everything is a lie. Our love for God should be demonstrated as what we see in Christ, that He left the best Kingdom of the universe for me, then why should I not go out and do the same for the least of these. Just my 2.
"He will reply, 'I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me. (Matthew 25:45)
