Let brotherly love continue.
Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
Hebrews 13: 1-2
I sit in shock and disbelief as I read the headlines. My carnal side has a hard time gathering up brotherly love for someone who has done something so evil.. However, the Holy Spirit fills me with it. And so my heart aches, not only for those lives lost at his hands, but for the soul of that young man who will be forever lost. The enemy claimed him and won him. My prayers go out to his family.
I believe those babies went straight to Heaven. They will not face the temptations of this world or the heartache. They will not hunger, thirst or cry. They will not face worldly struggles. Their time on this earth was short and precious. My prayers go out for the parents and loved ones of all the families involved.
But I say unto you; Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them that despitefully use you and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven; for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
Matthew 5: 44-45
Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.
