Well this volcano is still causing major disruption around the world isn't it? On Sunday afternoon I was involved in a conversation about this with some fellow Christians at Church. One wise lady said that the recent disruption serves to remind us who is in control in the world. It isn't man but God who has control. Another friend said that she heard a politician commenting that these phenomena remind us that we are only residents here on planet earth.
Of course it is causing great disruption for many people and if I was stranded somewhere I am sure I wouldn't be happy. But there is a much bigger picture here isn't there? A great deal of the locals are being greatly affected by this eruption. We don't see many pictures of them on BBC headlines or Sky etc at the moment do we? All we seem to hear about is how much money the airlines are losing, the economic cost to business worldwide and to individuals.
Doesn't this just highlight the sickening greed that is rife in our society? That airlines are prepared to put money before safety?
1But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— 5having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them. 2 Timothy 3. NIV.
