Thought: We do not need a straight and level path, but rather a marked one. Not a highway, though sometimes for rest one is nice, but a simple trail, though it lead over and under, across and around, that the joy in arriving will be greater for the experience of the journey.


Matthew 21:33-46 →Ever read this parable and think that the owner is hoping they'll respect his son? Think again. It's a statement of fact, given that this parable is specifically to illustrate about God sending Jesus into this world. The Son will be respected, for “every knee will bow” (Phil. 2:10-11). Don't think God was surprised by the treatment of Jesus.


Romans 1:7 →“to all” I hit this in a sermon last week, that God's Word is for everyone. It comes back again: How much time do we spend seeking God's Word for a few? How often do we try and restrict who hears? How do we restrict unintentionally who hears? Yet His Word is for all His beloved.


Joshua 1:9 →Don't bicker with the commands of God. It's just not worth it. Act on what He has said, and don't shrink back.


Check out Reflections on Proverbs!
