It's always interesting, sometimes a bit of a shock as well, to LISTEN to the lections read aloud by other people after however long I've spent wrangling with them during the week ... the "lines" that jump out of the undergrowth are amazing.
And the great line this morning -- I didn't preach on it, but it would make a terrific office-wall decal -- was Rebekah's complaint: "If it is to be this way, why do I live?"
It just applies to SO MANY situations...
I'd like an anthology of utterances in which the people of God blow raspberries at the whole shebang: e.g. Jonah, "Yea, I do well to be angry..." and so forth.
