Another tragedy. How do I talk to my kids about it?

Posted on 10/23/2017 by Greg Yoder

The Las Vegas shooting massacre, the wildfires in California, and the hurricanes in Texas, Florida, and Puerto Rico—it seems like every time we turn on the TV or look at our phones, we’re hearing about another tragedy that’s taking more lives and leaving more people wondering, “Where’s God?” What do we do? Remind them that God’s in control. Proverbs 19:21 says, “Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the LORD that will stand” (ESV). Isaiah 45:7 says He’s the One who makes things calm and allows calamity. Why? Many times it’s to show His power, help us to refocus, and ultimately lead people to Himself.
