Don't wait for six strong men to take you to church!
When it comes to the Bible, I have more questions than I have
answers. You probably do too. We say, "When I get to Heaven,
I'll have lots of questions," but the truth is that by then the
questions won't matter.
We have so many things that "wonder" us as my PA Dutch
relatives would say. Like, did the Ark actually have bats and
alligators on board; will I see my deceased baby girl in Heaven,
and will she still be a baby; If Jesus had no home and no income,
where did he get his sandals and garments; Did John the Baptist
eat locusts like we know them or were they something different?
You probably have your own list. It would be interesting to make
our list as we read through the Bible remembering that in eternity
it won't matter. Do you know that we do a lot of unnecessary
fretting and wondering about things that don't really matter, even
Ecc. 3:11 (nlt) says, "God has made everything beautiful for its
own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even
so, people cannot see the whole scope of God's work from
beginning to end." There are some things we'll never understand,
but don't let it keep you awake -- it doesn't matter.
