Haiti & Childish Thinking

As children we sang the song, “He’s got the Whole World in His Hands…”. 

As an adult watching horrifying images of destruction in Haiti, death in Middle East war zones, and striking poverty in our own streets, it is sometimes difficult to understand that He STILL has the whole world in his hands.

 Yet, by faith I know He does. 

 My New English Bible describes how little we are able to understand about the things of God…

 “When I was a child my speech, my outlook, and my thoughts were all childish.  When I grew up I had finished with childish things. Now we see only puzzling reflections in a mirror, but one day we shall see face to face.  My knowledge is now partial; then it will be whole, like God’s knowledge of me.  In a word, there are three things which last forever: faith, hope and love, but the greatest of them all is love.”  I Corinthians 13:11-13

 As we pray today while time runs out for many in Haiti…and all around our world…may this powerful video be a reminder to us: Though in our childish thinking we still cannot fully understand,  He’s got the whole world in His Hands.
