God's Mercy even in a School Shooting

I have never used my Blogger app to post a new blog, but I am out running errands and have a heavy heart. The school shooting in Connecticut that claimed 26 lives is horrifying.

There are so many things that make this tragic. So close to Christmas. School administrators killed. Young children. And this event accounts for more deaths than any other school shooting in history.

I hope you will join me in lifting all involved up in prayer, and I wish I had something profound to say, but I don't.

I do want to remind everyone that God is still with us, and He is very much in control. Also, I think that right now we can cling to the age of accountability now more than ever.

Every young child who lost his life today was immediately ushered into the presence of Jesus.*

It is so important that we each understand the age of accountability, and in a time like this it demonstrates the mercy of God in the face of tragedy. These children could have been the children of God-deniers or God-haters, but that was not laid to the charge of the children.

For more on proof of the age if accountability click those words in the "labels" section at the bottom.

*by young children I do not mean a specific age, but those too young to be accountable for their choices.
