Before we as Christians make unwise comments about tornadoes or bus accidents, we need to heed the words of scripture. Please read Luke 13:1-5. Sometimes our immediate response to tragedy is to think that God is judging those to whom it befalls. But remember Job, bad things happen to the righteous and the unrighteous. The point God seems to always "drive home" is "where is your heart?", "are you right with me?". I think for most of us a lot of the time- we need repentance. To repent means to make an "about face", turn around, turn away from our sin and selfishness and turn toward Jesus. If we could practice repentance; we would always be ready for whatever comes.
