My heart aches for those who were murdered in France. I'm so sorry for the country's loss and great pain it is now experiencing. I also wonder at terrorists who have a god so small he needs defending from cartoonists. My God is big! He is secure in who He is. We do not need to worry for him about the insults of mere men. We can trust Him to judge correctly. As Genesis 18:25 asks, "Shall not the Judge of the earth do right?" So tonight I raise my own pencils for those we have lost.
And I pray for France.
