The challenge this week is not finding something to speak about, but choosing from two of the most significant passages in the entire Bible! I’ve spoken often on the Prodigal Son, but this time I want to focus on the Epistle and its lesson for us.
How many times, when we are on a journey of some sort, do we think about how to get out of it? The Israelites left Egypt with all kinds of enthusiasm, but they began to mutter during the journey and lost sight of who they were and what they were supposed to do. Hence such stories as the infamous golden calf. No matter how much they might have fantasized about plenty to eat in Egypt, the truth was that there was no real option but to be focused on the journey they were on!
BTW, if I seem not myself, it’s the result of being jumped on by a loving dog who thinks she’s still a puppy.
