IN MANY ways we need to expect the unexpected, especially in these days in which we are living.
I was reminded of this when watching the television news the other day when they screened an interview with Jacinda Ardern the New Zealand Prime Minister.
Part way through the interview, the room began to move and shake as a minor earthquake hit the area.
The Prime Minister just kept smiling and continued to get on with the job in hand, not fazed by the unexpected.
We can so easily be side-tracked by people and happenings around us instead of keeping our minds focused on the job in hand.
It has been very difficult for so many of us to get focused during the lockdown that has changed our lifestyle over the past weeks.
The Bible tells us that many people, especially his disciples, tried to urge Jesus not to take the path that he was taking because it was leading him to Jerusalem and death on the cross.
These well meaning people expected him to be the warrior king who would set them free from the occupying Roman army; but Jesus came not to fight, but to bring the love of his Father God to them.
What ever our situation today in this lock down, we can have the assurance that the love of God through Jesus is still available for us now.
