Scripture:
“Jesus said to them: ‘Watch out that no one deceives you. Many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am he,’ and will deceive many. When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains.'” ~Mark 13:5-8

Observation:
Jesus is warning His disciples not to be deceived by people claiming to be the Messiah and not to be worried by terrible events. Today we have a lot of wars and even more rumors of wars. I just wonder how long the birth pains will continue before Jesus comes again.

Application:
I have a tendency to worry about things like politics and war. Jesus is saying, “don’t be alarmed. Such things must happen.” I just need to calm down and trust Him that what needs to happen will happen.

Prayer:
Jesus, help me not to worry and to trust that Your timing is right. No matter what awful things happen here on Earth, help me to be calm and keep doing what is right.
