Stability and North Korea

North Korea is rattling a nuclear saber.  The U.S. is engaged in war games around the Korean peninsula.  It makes the stability of the Cold War look appealing.

Something is provoking North Korea to challenge the U.S., although no one in the West seems to understand it.  Most likely, the pain of poverty under communism is causing civil unrest in North Korea, and the government there needs to distract its people from the pain of daily life.

We are not used to instability in our culture.  And that has spiritual ramifications.  We may think we can get along without God.  When trials come, we quickly remember that He's in charge. 

Jesus is in charge, no matter what happens in Korea.  Only in Him do we find true stability.
