Wednesday, 3:42 PM This has already been a long week. I have spent Monday and Tuesday carrying over 300 boxes of books. On a more pleasant note, I was encouraged by Renee Altson’s participation in the comment section of my review of her book. I truly encourage all to read through her journal. It will be a difficult, but transformative experience.
This morning Professor Chuck Degroat likened the Beatitudes of Matthew 5 unto eating the dust of our Lord. Faithful disciples of the rabbis would follow so closely to them that it is said that they tasted the dust from their rabbi’s sandals in front of them. Likewise, our call is to follow our Lord so closely that we taste His dust. This life of allegiance and meekness is a hard one indeed.
