While I do not have time for a full-fledged blog, my mind this week has gone to a quote I discovered recently on a tombstone of a famous Chicagoan and (ironically) former Governor of Illinois:

I am not discouraged. Things will right themselves. The pendulum swings one way and then another, but the steady pull of gravitation is toward the center of the earth. Any structure must be plumb if it is to endure. So it is with nations: Wrong may seem to triumph, right may seem to be defeated. But the gravitation of Eternal Justice is toward the throne of God. Any political institution which is to endure must be plumb with that line of justice.

Did you know that following rabbit trails is not always a bad thing? At least when it comes to Bible study. The negative connotation of this idiom is debunked when pursuing the myriad paths of exploring words, phrases and passages inspired by the mind of God. The wonder of God’s word is that every rabbit trail you traverse leads to treasure. And each one is intersected by others, to create a great interconnected web of wisdom, as the trails are investigated.
