Spiritual Sunday: Rationalise it Not

When disaster happens, many will try to rationalise it.

Some have quoted an ancient chinese verse that says
great things will often come after great trials.

天将降大任于斯人也
必先苦其心志 劳其筋骨
饿其体肤 空乏其身
增益其所不能

For me personally, I do not understand why the twin asian disasters happen and will not try to rationalise it. Often than not, it is beyond human understanding.
What we can do is to help them by one way or another to rebuild their homeland.

It's actually a quite simple explanation. Humans are ruining the earth (Rev 11:18). And at 2Tim 3:1 we read: But know this, that in the last days critical times hard to deal with will be here
