Luke 21:5-11

Jesus parallels the fall of the temple with the end of the world. The disciple’s questions rise out of fear, and that fear makes them vulnerable to messengers with false messages. He tells them that though the destruction is inevitable, they must not waste time trying to determine when it will happen.

I cannot help but think about people who are diagnosed with a debilitating and/or terminal illness. They know the “what” but not exactly when, yet they live every moment to the fullest. Lord, I believe this is what you ask of me in a time when the world is spinning out of control.
