Several weeks ago I posted about an awful tragedy in upstate New York involving seven teenagers killed in a fiery crash. This past week while in Canada the bridge stretching across the Mississippi River in Minneapolis collapsed, swallowing and snuffing out the lives of many crossing into the city that day. What I posted about weeks ago was poignant and similar to what Piper posted in response to the tragedy in his city. He says it better and often shows himself to be wiser. We would all do well to listen, contemplate and consider that our lives are but a vapor and that we need not fear death if we are held in the hands of God through His Son Jesus.
