Morning: Psalm 80; 2 Kings 5:1-19; I Corinthians 4:8-21
Evening: Psalm 77; Matthew 5:21-26
In university, I had two posters that summed up Jesus’ teaching on reconciliation. Two ugly, toothless dragons with eye patches fought, with the caption: “An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth … that way the whole world will be blind and toothless” (a quote attributed to Goethe, Gandhi, King, and Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof!). And two angry dragons, each standing on his own tiny island, threw mud at the other … the caption: “Mud slung, is ground lost” (words of Adlai Stevenson, US ambassador to the UN, 1961-63). Make peace with your opponent, soon.
