Only in Our Hood

This happened in our neighborhood the other night (well, not exactly in our neighborhood but sort of near us)... Shot assassination-style while his girlfriend watched it happen. He left behind 12 children, one of which hasn't even been born yet. Heart-breaking on so many levels...

This afternoon I was looking at our Bible reading for today and these verses in Deuteronomy really struck me, in light of the tragedy and especially those left in the wake of it:

But from there you will seek the Lord your God and you will find him, if you search after him with all your heart and with all your soul. When you are in tribulation, and all these things come upon you in the latter days, you will return to the Lord your God and obey his voice. For the Lord your God is a merciful God. He will not leave you or destroy you or forget the covenant with your fathers that he swore to them. Deuteronomy 4:29-31
