The storms raged in Indonesia. The storms raged in South Carolina. The storms raged in Florida. Sometimes storms are not metaphors. Sometimes people are literally going through it. Literally hanging on by their fingernails. Literally losing loved ones and burying friends and living on the edge of life and death. People say: “I lost everything.” That is not a metaphor. It is literally true. When it comes to the Bible — I am not a literalist. The Bible must be interpreted to make sense for our age. But when it comes to life, sometimes the literal truth is the only thing that matters. Jesus once calmed the storm. I wonder if Jesus can help clean up after one? Take a Breath today. Say a prayer for the victims of these storms. Yes, literally, say a prayer.
