Talk and speculation about what happened to Malaysia Airlines flight 370 is everywhere. You can’t turn on the TV or go online without seeing it.
Most of the coverage I’ve seen has been on the search effort or theories over what happened. I haven’t seen much on the families of the missing. They are the ones I’m praying for today.
I can’t imagine the wide range of emotions and frustration they must be feeling. It’s for them that I lift up this verse:
Matthew 5:4 (NRSV)
“Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.”
