Chapter 14

A lovely little nugget of gold, tucked away in the OT. Originally said in reference to Absalom, but I think it actually refers to everyone of us. “Like water spilled on the ground, which cannot be recovered, so we must die. But God does not take away life; instead, he devises ways so that a banished person may not remain estranged from him.” (v.14) So says the wise woman of Tekoa. We are all banished and estranged until we follow Jesus. [21-05-2008]
