This story is over at CNN.com right now. To read of a family that thought it better to kill themselves and their children rather than continue to live is so tragic. Is our economy really the culprit? Or is it society? Where was the local church? Where were the neighbors, friends, agencies, anyone?!?!? Five children are dead!
I know that this family may not have reached out for help, but how much more can we as a body of Christ form a safety net of some kind?
I pray to our ever gracious God that He be with this family. Are they in His hands? I hope so! Heavenly Father also please be with families (including mine) that are struggling because of unemployment or other economic hardships. Please help your body share and serve those that need help so badly.
