Former child-actor-turned-evangelist Kirk Cameron shared a video on Facebook explaining his interpretation of the meaning of hurricanes.
As he stood in an Orlando airport preparing to flee Hurricane Irma, Cameron had this to say:
This is a spectacular display of God’s immense power. And when he puts his power on display, it’s never without reason. There’s a purpose. And we may not always understand what that purpose is, but we know it’s not random. And we know that weather is sent to cause us to respond to God in humility, awe, and repentance.
Cameron offered advice to parents of children with questions about super storms:
Remind them that God is the blessed controller of all things. He is the one who gives us peace, security and strength in the midst of the storm and that he uses this to point us to him and to his care for us.
Another possibility is that God wants us to pay attention to climate change.
