Pieces of God’s Breaking Heart

Another shooting, today it’s in San Bernardino, California.  People with guns are killing people.

This isn’t about gun control, it’s not even about violence, it’s about the desire to love like Jesus.  To.  Love.  Like.  Jesus.

There aren’t exceptions for Jesus; He doesn’t pick and choose who to love, who to care for, who to forgive.  Bad guys with guns are right up there with social workers and teachers, office workers and babysitters.

If you ask God to break your heart-for what breaks His, be prepared for sorrow, grief, heartache and tragedy.  Nothing good is present in evil.  But out of evil, can come good.  Along with healing and forgiveness and peace.

We cannot imagine the incredible sadness God feels when He watches His creation destroying itself.  Some will say — God created the world, He is responsible for all of this.  I would say – yes, God created the world, people have been using free-will since Adam and Eve, making their own decisions, such as they are.

Deuteronomy 4:29

But you will also begin to search again for Jehovah your God, and you will find him when you search for him with all your heart and soul.
