Of good and evil

Morning: Psalm 50; Deuteronomy 9:23-10:5; Hebrews 4:1-10
Evening: Psalm 19, 46; John 3:16-21
Good and evil, light and darkness, obedience and disobedience, faithfulness and betrayal are the powerful themes of all great literature, including the Bible.  How do we make sense of them?  We seek satisfaction in ‘idols’ (wealth, status, power).  Darkness attracts us as well as light.  We pursue things we know will harm us.  We seem to love the boundary between good and evil.  There, we feel alive; could that be it? … But doesn’t God inhabit that boundary too?  So a Sabbath day with God could be far more exciting than we ever imagined!
