Matthew 10:7 As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’
Believe it or not. But Hurricane Matthew had a message for all of us to pay heed too.
The devastating news and videos of the wrath of Hurricane Matthew over the weekend, kept me in prayer.
One never can imagine what one will do when a major storm comes upon you.
Some people are prepared for natural disasters. But a large majority of us are not even given to believe that it could just happen to us.
A few years ago, I visited Rocky Mount, North Caroline after this county was flooded and homes, as well as, businesses were under water.
My college classmate was born and raised there. Yet, for her, all she could talk about is how things used to be wonderful and pleasant…and now, she was dealing with fear and discomfort at not knowing if another storm of the same magnitude would visited her hometown again.
Well, unfortunately, the state of North Carolina was ravished once again with another major storm and despite all the efforts of local and state government officials doing their share to keep the people safe. Nature had its way.
We can all agree that nature is nothing to take for granted. And despite our efforts to feel that we have the power to overtake the storm, wind and rain. We can do nothing without Christ.
Because Hurricane Matthew caused loss of lives and property we need to do as much as we can to support those in need.
I for one will be providing support for the Haitian people who are in dire need of rebuilding their small island.
Latest news reports that over 1000 people have died during the hurricane.
The storm named Hurricane Matthew caused serious destruction to the island of Haiti and its people. If you can do anything…first, pray, second, ask of yourself what you can do by setting up a donation station for clothing, food and other necessities. You can also contribute financially to a reputable charity or non-profit organization that will distribute directly to the people in Haiti.
In the meanwhile, you can also purchase a Matthew 10:7 tee-shirt with 100% of purchases going to Doctors Without Borders.
