Why do people suffer? Why do disasters kill many people each year? Are the people who died greater sinners than the rest of the world’s population? In other words, did they die for their sin? Let Jesus answer,

There were present at that season some who told Him about the Galileans whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. And Jesus answered and said to them, “Do you suppose that these Galileans were worse sinners than all other Galileans, because they suffered such things? I tell you, no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish” (Luke 13.1–3).

Suffering does not automatically mean that the victims are suffering for their sin, but it is true that we shall suffer for our sin, if we do not repent of it.


  • Do you have sin from which you have not repented?
  • If so, why are you waiting?
