The Worst Day In The World

What do you think was the worst day in the world? Like most things it depends upon how you define "worst." The day that sin entered the world would rank pretty high. The day that Hiroshima was bombed would rank way up there on my list too. I would say that this passage in my reading today might also have a place in the top 10...
Exodus 12:29 At midnight the Lord struck down all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sat on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who was in the dungeon, and all the firstborn of the livestock. 30 And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he and all his servants and all the Egyptians. And there was a great cry in Egypt, for there was not a house where someone was not dead.

Lord, let me never forget that you grant and sustain life and that my every breath is dependent upon your grace.
