Over the last few months, we have seen a number of hurricanes, earthquakes, threats of nuclear war, and terror attacks in various ways. And when tragedy strikes, many of us ask why. Why did God let that happen? Why did those people have to die? But the question that remains is what our response should be when we hear news like that. Many think tragedy occurs as a result of divine retribution. But we're going to see what Jesus says about that in our text for tonight.
