The Beginning of Sorrows

A few nights ago a major thunderstorm blew through. I took these standing on the front porch. The storms spared us but a tornado touched down in McIntosh County. What happened here pales in comparison to the earthquake in China and the storm that hit Myanmar. It seems the Chinese government seems to be trying to do the right thing. The Myanmar government on the other hand seemed to put the needs of its citizens at the bottom of their priority list. The victim total will be well over 100,000 dead. Lord, have mercy.

3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?
4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.
7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.
8 All these are the beginning of sorrows.

Matthew 24
