Oh Lebanon, where is your glory?

"Is it not yet a very little while
Till Lebanon shall be turned into a fruitful field,
And the fruitful field be esteemed as a forest?" (Isaiah 29:17)

I pray that this "very little while" arrive soon. I mourn for those who died in the last few days and those who will continue to die. After 15 years of civil strife, we thought forget the past, time will heal everything. This is convenient, no one had to repent of any deeds, no one had to compensate for any injuries. Hey presto, everything would fix itself. If we can't learn from our own mistakes, maybe others in this world can learn from them. People don't just "move on". Saying "sorry" and telling the other "you count, you are human too" is so essential.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on us sinners.
