Monday June 22nd, Job 38: "Who shut up the sea behind doors when it burst forth from the womb, when I made the clouds its garment and wrapped it in thick darkness, when I fixed limits for it and set its doors and bars in place, when I said, 'This far you may come and no farther; here is where your proud waves halt'? I can understand the dynamics of natural disasters, water temperatures, gulf streams, air currents and temperatures and of course, plate tectonics, but I can never know fully why they exist. I do know that in times of disasters, I can help those in need. I can’t understand the fullness of God, but I can act out of the love of Christ. As the children of God we are called to live a life of the compassion of Christ. We are called into relationship with this creator God, with the fellow creatures whom we do not always understand and do not always agree, and with the creation from which we were formed. It is not a walk in the park, or in the garden for that matter. It is a walk in this world with the eyes of Christ and compassion for all.
