In light of the news regarding the I-35W Bridge in Minnesota tragedy, I couldn’t help but think of how shocking it can beÂ when disaster happens when you least expect it. It reminds us how fragile and fleeting life is and can be.
Things like this can often make us reflect, and that can be a good thing.
I can imagine soon shock will turn to anger; bridges are made to cross, not collapse, and people will want answers how could this happen.
But before the anger and blameÂ hits, should we not self examine? Are there any relationships that are structurally deficient? Any loved ones we haven’t appreciated fully? Did you let someone walk away and not say I love you, perhaps for the last time?
Most important, how about our relationship with God? Is it sound or could that be structurally deficient too?
Now that’s a bridge that is only up to you and me.
