Remembering 9-11

The life of mortals is like grass,
they flourish like a flower of the field;
16 the wind blows over it and it is gone,
and its place remembers it no more.

— Psalm 103:15-16

“For most of us, our only connection to the events of 9/11 was what we saw on television. In this poignant illustration produced by The Skit Guys, we see how the event connected us in more ways than we may realize, and learn how to the Bible teaches us to reconcile and commemorate the September 11 attacks.”

Now 11 years later let us not forget what happened and let us remember those that were lost this day. While we may not understand why these events took place or to these particular people, we must not allow this to divide us. The day of 9-11 brought a unique sense of unity to our country which now stands on division—and a house divided cannot stand. (Mark 3:25)

Our enemies know this—most especially our biggest adversary, the devil. (1 Peter 5:8)

He thrives on division and discord whether it be between, family or friends, states, or nations.

Let us put away the foolish things that divide us as a nation as many new threats have come upon us just this year alone, and a new one—ISIS—is creeping upon us. (Ecclesiastes 7:25)

We must be watchful of the times and situations around us and weary of the distractions of the scandals that media and the world continuously throw our way.

But all those who knew him, including the women who had followed him from Galilee, stood at a distance, watching these things.

—Luke 23:49

In Mosul, ISIS militants marked with a spray-painted ن (the Arabic letter for “N”) all Christian property to be seized after the ultimatum. “N”, or ن , is the first letter of the Arabic word for Christian, “Nasrani” or Nazarene. #pray4thepersecuted
