Daily Devotional – April 17

 WHY?

The events at Virginia Tech yesterday always leave us perplexed, asking ourselves and those around us, “Why?”

It will be human nature to seek out blame-

  • Some will blame guns
  • Some will blame mental disorders
  • Some will blame society
  • Some will blame parents
  • Some will blame government

But the truth of the matter, the reason things like this happen is for one reason:

Sin.

Romans 5:12 Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all men, for that all have sinned:

The only hope for this world is Christ.

1John 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin.

Our hearts and prayers go out to family and friends.

  1. Yes, sin is definitely the root cause of what happened yesterday. My heart goes out to the families that have lost loved ones too, as I pray for them.
