O How I Love Your Law! It Is My Meditation All The Day…

“A Christian who has David in his bones, Jeremiah in his bloodstream, Paul in his fingertips and Christ in his heart will know how much and how little value to put on his own momentary feelings and the experience of the week. To remain willfully ignorant of  Abraham wandering in the desert, the Hebrews enslaved in Egypt, David battling the Philistines, Jesus arguing with the Pharisees and Paul writing to the Corinthians is like saying, ‘I refuse to remember that when I kicked that black dog last week he bit my leg.’ If I don’t remember it, in the next fit of anger I will kick him again and get bitten again.” (Peterson)

*Spangler/Tverberg, Sitting at the Feet of rabbi Jesus, 69-70.
