    Have You Noticed What is Missing From Japan?

    What will happen in America when this kind of disaster strikes?  Will we be patient in food and water lines?  We will be decent and orderly amidst such tragedy and suffering?

    Maybe we could learn something from the Japanese.

    For when nations not having Law do by nature the things of the Law, they not having Law are a law to themselves, who show the work of the Law written in their hearts, their conscience witnessing with them…
    (Rom 2:14-15a)

    To the least of my brothers…..

    For I hungered, and you gave Me food to eat; I thirsted, and you gave Me drink;

    I was a stranger, and you took Me in; naked, and you clothed Me;

    I was sick, and you visited Me;

    I was in prison, and you came to Me.

    (Mat 25:35-36)
