Introduction: A 7.0 Richter Scale earthquake hit one of the most impoverished nations in the world, and certainly the poorest nation in the Americas leaving scores of thousands of dead people, destruction, ruin, pain and anguish in Haiti
When tragedies hit others, we tend to conclude that there must be a reason behind that is attributable to error, carelessness or sin, but Jesus says something completely different. Let us turn to NAS Luke 13:1-9
1. A gruesome report:
2. What did the account refer to?
Matthew Henry: â€śwe cannot judge of men's sins, by their sufferings in this worldâ€¦â€ť but, â€śwe should consider the sudden and extraordinary [death] of others as warnings to ourselves.â€ť
* We die in our beds or in a national calamity, because we are born sinners *
Thesis: What should we learn about others' calamities? A) Remember our own sinfulness b) Remember the patience of God & c) Remember the certainty of His Judgment
