Mid-Week Challenge

Earlier this week, you might have heard about the shutdown of the Large Hadron Collider.  This is a huge underground tube system beneath the France-Switzerland boarder that was built to smash particles at close to the speed of light.  It is basically an atom splitter that gives off huge amounts of energy while in use.  Estimates put the cost to construct at around seven billion Pounds.  Some say that it is the largest machine on Earth.  Even with all this expense, power and security last Friday a weasel wandered into a 66,000-volt transformer, causing a "severe electrical perturbation."  Reports say the collider will be shut down for several days and unfortunately the weasel did not survive.

Isn’t it amazing that with all of our intelligence, abilities and resources something as small as a weasel can bring it all down in a split-second!  This story should cause us to pause and reflect on the fact that with all our abilities none of us is promised tomorrow.  No matter how high we go in the company, no matter how important among people we become, each breath we take is a gift from God.  One day we are at the top of our game, the next we are out on the street.  Life is smooth sailing then all of the sudden disaster strikes.  Don’t take today for granted.  You never know what “weasel” is lurking just out of your sight.  

James 4:14 - Why, you do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.

Proverbs 27:1 - Do not boast about tomorrow, For you do not know what a day may bring forth.
