I’m sure that most, if not all, of you have heard about the tornadoes that ripped through Oklahoma and other places on May 19-20. I read reports that the tornado on May 20 that went through Moore, OK, was between 1-2 miles wide. It’s wind gusts were near 200 mph at times. It ranks among the worst tornadoes ever.
If you are wanting to help give toward the relief effort, the Red Cross is a great way to do that.
Hearing different stories and reflecting on the events has caused me to think about the things that are most important to me. Yes, there are many other disasters that can cause you to think about these, but this one (literally) hit close to home.
- Don’t put too much emotion into “stuff”
- Things can be replaced; people can’t
- Relationships are much more the most important
- Relationship with God can’t be replaced
Question: What is important to you?

My family and the assurance that they pursue an intimate relationship with their Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Next would have to be people in general. People matter. Only because God said so and Jesus exemplified this more than anything else. My deep longing is to invite or welcome unbelievers to ask questions about who Jesus is and why He is so important. It is important for us to be approachable as believers…otherwise their questions will never get answered outside of reading the Bible. Joshua, im so glad to hear your family is safe. Thanks for putting this out there! K
Thanks for sharing this. I definitely agree with your list.
