Just watched a movie called “The Day After Tomorrow” and in that movie you see people evacuated from the US to Mexico because of natural disasters hitting the US. Mexico couldn’t handle the hordes of people fleeing the States crossing the Rio Grande, they closed the borders. Next you see folks abandoning not only the homes they left, but also their cars as they scramble across the river after they heard the border was closed, carrying their bags, most of all herding their families. At the end of the day, it was not about how much stuff they could carry, it is all about getting your loved ones safely across, away from impending disaster and doom. Relationships matter the most!


At the end of the day, it is not about the accumulation of stuff; it is about the most precious things to God, that is you and me. So God launches a rescue mission, clearly seen in the passion of the Christ. Look at what the Bible says…


“This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us.” 1 John 3:16 (NIV)
