More and more, especially in moments of national tragedy, I am reminded that all people matter. All people are created by God! All people are made of flesh. All people have hearts and feelings. And it hurts just as much to see your President die in Poland as it does in America.

If Air Force One had crashed and President Obama had died this morning, our nation would be in a state of turmoil. Plans would have likely been cancelled and we would all be glued to the TV. Just ask people 40 and older where they were when JFK was shot. They will remember. The world stood still. Of course there would be the jerks that would celebrate because they don't like Obama. They may even give God credit. But by and large, are nation would be hurting deeply today.
Well, Poland is hurting in that way! And we should pray for them. They matter just as much to God as Americans do! God is just as much on the move there as he is here. Empathy is all about putting yourself in the others shoes. Do that for a moment today. And pray like you just lost your President.
When tragedies happen in other places in the world, it provides you an opportunity to grow your Kingdom Heart. A Kingdom Heart is one that loves all people---shows empathy for all people---wishes to care for all people---whether I know them or not---- whether they look like me or not.
God desires to pour out his spirit on ALL PEOPLE...
The NONE should perish....
