Albert Mohler has a good article to think about on this day after the tragic collapse of the I-35W bridge in Minneapolis.

Lest You Be Consumed—The Tragedy in Minneapolis

I was just stuck on that bridge in the one lane of traffic last week. In my circuitous attempt at trying to turn around in that area, I was on it three times in an hour. I had two of my children with me.

And similarly, so many people today will say “I was on that bridge just hours/minutes/moments before it collapsed.” or “I usually drive over that bridge at that time but today…” something was different.

Thank the Lord for his mercy, that he spared you through circumstances and pray that the Lord will use this to draw people to him for salvation. Pray for the comfort of the families of those lost in this tragic accident and that they too will turn to the Lord.
