There are two sentences I have seen, or heard, several times over the last 25 days. They have appeared in the devotions we are reading together. One of the sentences is repeated often in the reflections that have been emailed, paraphrased and reshaped to fit the point. I referenced one of them in the third morning message this month. Sometimes they appear separately, they both occur in today’s devotion.
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. (Matthew 6:33)
“Go vertical first and all the horizontal needs will be provided.”
They are becoming repetitive, recurring, repeated, returning, reappearing … like this is a lesson I have not learned. In the late ‘60’s, Peter, Paul and Mary recorded a Pete Seeger song, “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?” And I rewrote the refrain to fit my point:
Oh, when will I ever learn?
When will I ever learn?
Can I trust Him? When I learn to trust, I will be on the path to restoration.
By the way, the letters “re” appear twenty-two times in today’s reflection.
