Reversal of News

The nation rejoiced late last night when it was reported that 13 miners trapped in a coal mine in West Virginia were alive. I watched CNN and families were reporting that the workers were going to walk into the Sago Baptist Church as soon as they came out. This morning the news was grim. Somebody jumped the gun and said all of the miners were alive when in truth only one was alive. How devastating the news must have been for the families of the miners. I can only pray for them today. I think this is a lesson for all of us to be careful to find out the facts of a situation before we share it with others. Those of us who are followers of Jesus need to be especially careful talking about sensitive issues with each other. We can be guilty of gossip and not even realize it. Sometimes we share prayer requests for fellow believers when in reality we are sharing gossip. This is a reminder for me to make sure I know everything and is the news I have really edifying for others to hear.

I used to be in the newspaper business and I can tell you that there are some copy editors who are getting in big huge fat trouble this morning. I worked on a paper in Winter Haven Florida straight out of college and we missed it when the owner of Cypress Gardens died. Yup. It wasn't a pleasant time at the News Chief that day. It's a HUGE faux pas about the miners. My heart goes out to those families.

Piper was pretty blunt about it in the morning session. He took the USA Today and threw it on the ground and said loudly and resoundingly, "DEAD!"

Not alive.

That is one intense man.
