A Deadly Plane Crash (and Reflecting Upon Our Lives)

It’s not usual that tragedy strikes so close to home. A small passenger plane crashed and burned near my home in Northern Colorado, killing the only person inside of it.

This is shocking, to say the least. Children from nearby schools watched the plane crash, no doubt traumatizing them. It is a reminder to all of us that we are closer than we think to our last breath—and that tragedy can happen anywhere.

…for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust.
(Psalm 103:14, NIV)

As you pray for those who were affected by this crash, I hope you take a moment, along with me, to reflect upon your life. Are we spending the time we have wisely? Are we being good stewards of everything that is given to us?

I’ll be the first to admit that I have not been a good steward of the time Christ has given me. But knowing I could pass at any moment 1) keeps my eyes on Christ throughout all things, and 2) encourages me to spend what time I have loving Jesus, and loving others. Most of all, it reminds me of the absolute importance of knowing Jesus as Lord and Savior, and gives me urgency to tell others about Him.

At the end of the day, these things are what truly matter. I hope that I, and you all, do them well.

Please pray (prayer sheet here)…

  • For those affected by this plane crash.
  • That unbelievers would come to know Christ, even through this.
  • For the Chibok girls and Leah Sharibu, who face trial, difficulty, and probably death everyday.

Thank you for your prayers!
