Flooding in the Philippines: Nature’s Wrath or Man-made Repercussions.

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Typhoon Yolanda… Ondoy… Habagat… These three caused so much flooding in the Philippines that destroyed not only material things but had also taken away so many lives. Whose fault is it? What this brought by nature or by our own selfish desires?

In cases like those mentioned above, the story of Noah where it rained for 40 days and 40 nights always come to my mind. After the rain nothing was left except for those people and animals that stayed in the ark. When the flood subsided, they saw the rainbow- a symbol of God’s promise that He’ll never again let such thing happen to the world.

The story made me a firm believer that the flood we experienced are man-made and at the same time nature’s wrath but it will never be God’s desire. We took advantage of the wealth of our environment. We abuse it through illegal logging, development of subdivisions and our consumerist way of thinking. We forgot our responsibility so in the end nature takes its own course.
