When you hear of wars and rumors of wars, do not be alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.  Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be earthquakes in various places, and famines. These are the beginning of birth pains.
You must be on your guard....
And the gospel must first be preached to all nations.
Mark 13:7-10

Unfortunate, but true...people are doing what people do...being mean to each other.
"What the world needs now is love, sweet love" lyrics popped into my head but love is far from man's intentions.

The earth is doing what it does, quake.  There's nothing new here but it is still alarming.  Why is this happening?  Why don't we have peace?

We're not expected to, according to what the Lord said.  He knew there would be destruction because he knew the heart of man and the fragility of the earth.  He warned us that these are precursors to the end and that warning was 2,000 years ago.  It is still in effect today...for a reason.  We may not like His reasoning but it is still true and we still have a responsibility to do what he expects of us.
