As of this writing, with the pandemic just getting started in Brazil more than 380,000 individual images of God have perished worldwide, almost 110,000 of them in the United States alone.

Scripture: Genesis 1:27-31

So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them.

God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.” Then God said, “I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds in the sky and all the creatures that move along the ground—everything that has the breath of life in it—I give every green plant for food.” And it was so.God saw all that he had made, and it was very good. And there was evening, and there was morning—the sixth day.

Reflection: Why does God hate anger and hatred? Why does He mourn the loss of human life so much? Each premature death is the erasure of an image of God from the earth. There is nothing on earth God loves more than one of his children, with whom he longs to have fellowship. On earth as it is in heaven? I tell you that the mourning on earth, which is indeed great—does not compare to the mourning there is in heaven.

As we move forward, which we certainly will, let’s remember that we have a God who grieves with us. If you are one of those children who have fellowship with the Father through his Son, go to Him, lament with Him, and then express your faith and trust in Him that his kingdom come through you, and that his will be done through you. For His is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory forever!
