The Minneapolis Bridge Collapse August 2, 2007

I am sure you have heard of this by now, but here is a news story with available video. Also, John Piper’s reflections are well worth reading.

The first thing that came to my mind was,

“Come now, you who say, ‘Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit’–yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, ‘If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.’ As it is, you boast in your arrogance. All such boasting is evil.” – James 4:13-16

And don’t we need that reminder almost every single day? We never go wrong hearing the ‘same things’ time and time again. For we are so apt to grow secure and self-sufficient that we desperately need to hear over and over, “You are a mist.” I would encourage everyone to take theses things to the Lord in prayer, for only then will we really be affected by it the way we ought.

Repenting of my boasting,
