THE TRAGEDY GRENFELL TOWER:
Seventy- two people lost their lives, met their untimely deaths, in a 24 storey building tower block fire, ( Grenfell Tower, UK), today the 14th of June, exactly one year ago.
It all started when a faulty fridge-freezer on the fourth floor caught fire. The fire spread rapidly, consuming the whole building, destroying many lives and destinies.
In reality, the real fire started when cheap pre-fabricated material was used to renovate an already decrepit building. Cladding an old building with very fancy, but dangerous building materials, to catch the eye, was given more importance than the human lives that lived within the building.
Human-beings, made by Almighty God; made in God’s image: Men, Women, Children, Aunties, Uncles, Cousins, Daughters, Sons, Grand-Parents, Cousins, Babies all perished senselessly, on the account of the keeping up the shiny external appearance of a dilapidated building, already in disrepair.
How much energy do you give to keeping up external appearances to the detriment of your life, even your soul? Would you rather spend millions of pounds, spend hours and hours of time and energy on what has no benefit to your soul? Are you wasting time building an edifice that will eventually fall? This can be applied to every area of life. It’s something to think about…think about it.
Right now, let us say a word of prayer for the families of those who were killed in the Grenfell Tower fire: May God Comfort them, may they have all the support and care they need at this time, may God wipe the tears of those who mourn and heal their pain, in Jesus Name, Amen.
