Last Shall Be First

So often, we wonder why terrible things happen to the innocent in this world.  Why do some go hungry while wicked men prosper in riches? Why do young children suffer at the hands of our apathy?  I loved the lyrics of the Brooke Fraser song “Flags.”  We cannot explain these tradgedies, but we find comfort in the teachings of Christ, that someday, the last shall be first, the meek shall inherit the earth, the mourning shall be comforted…

You who mourn will be comforted
You who hunger will hunger no more
All the last shall be first
Of this I am sure

You who weep now will laugh again
All you lonely be lonely no more
Yes, the last will be first
Of this I’m sure

I don’t know why the innocents fall
While the monsters stand
I don’t know why the little ones thirst
But I know the last shall be first
I know the last shall be first
I know the last shall be first
