I’m sure you saw the news about the Oroville Dam in California which earlier this week developed a hole in its emergency spillway and forced the evacuation of 200,000 people under danger of potential flooding… many of whom are just now returning home.
Did you see the pictures or video of the seemingly tsunami created from that water going down the spillway? It was massive!
Could you imagine being given 20 minutes to evacuate your home? What would you grab? What would you take, not assuming you were going back?
I’d grab my wife, my kids, my grandkids – if they were over – probably a couple of pictures and since I had my phone with me and have the Bible app on it.. I guess that’s all I need. Maybe the safety deposit box with our passports and other important information…
What would really be important? The life of the people I love and my connection with Jesus! Nothing else really matters! What would you grab?
