Yesterday had my - not unusual - confusing spots. Think I’ll write a day ahead and be ready to reread (get the red pencil out) - and post first thing in the morn.
Not posting tomorrow and figure, doing two for the sake of... (good question), is... (another good question?).
Therefore, soon come sowers. Up before break-fast (or, best-to-fast).
One bit that really lost its thread: Exceptions and rules. I’m saying we should discern which is which. (Why didn’t I write that?).
Sometimes stated upfront. In Job, first verse begins the set up - going on to be clear - there was, no one like him on the earth. This neither makes all that happens a precedent never to be repeated or, to interpret
God-always. I read the ‘accuser’ as Satan but accept the ambiguity, not necessarily this being the one described in the undisputed other passages, but its poetic and parabolic structure. Like the Bible’s opening, the descriptions should cause us to pause.
Also relates how God works. Ways of encouragement and calling and what's spoken not necessarily universal. Yet ‘rules’ are there in some things, fixed in the construction of this reality we live or God’s character.
OK - too dragged off to carry-on. Hopefully James and I will cook up TS soon.
Any readers out there?
