Jesus says many things about "end times" in today's readings. some of these things might have happened already. some of them may still be to come. we don't know, and Jesus said that He didn't even know when they'd happen. only the Father in Heaven knows.
so what do we take away from this message? well, the most important thing is that God knows what's coming, He is in control, and we can trust Him. His loving mercy, kindness, and forgiveness will be available to us on those crazy scary days just like they're available to us today.
let's trust in Him and His lovingkindness every day... starting now and continuing through when things get crazy.
God, I trust you. Thank you for being there for me, always.
