There’s no light at the end of the tunnel for the gun violence epidemic in the United States. Amid daily and weekly tragedies, Sammy Tippit of Sammy Tippit Ministries says we need to grieve.

“I think our hearts ought to be broken because we see that God’s heart is broken over this. Jesus said that the thief comes to steal, kill and destroy, but He came that we might have life and have it abundantly. We know there’s a thief stealing, killing, and destroying people right now at this very moment. We ought to be grieved over that because we know that God has grieved over it. Christ came just for the opposite purpose.”
