We all need to remember how short and unpredictable life can be. How are you with God right now? If today were going to be the day that a shooter pointed a gun at you, where would you spend eternity? God loves you right now, wherever you are, no matter who you are. Look at the cross of Jesus and believe that was for you. Jesus died to give you forgiveness - and the only way that we can escape this dangerous planet is when we rise from the dead with Him. God did not create people to die, but to live eternally with him. Lord, thank you that all who passed away in this shooting who were believers in you have now joined you in eternal life in heaven.
