Ponderings and possibilities


Balance.

I find it so interesting how perfectly balanced the Word of God is. 

Just when I think I have it figured out because I am reading one piece of scripture, along comes another one and upsets my formula.  It is so complicated that if it were a software program, it would be impossible to code it such that there would be an algorithm to accurately do the exact thing that God wants under any circumstances.  Unlike software, the Word of God contains no bugs in the code and there is no formula.  The Holy Spirit guides us to live in faith, not by the letter of the law. 

Speaking of bugs, I thought I had found one this morning!   Deuteronomy 14:19And all winged insects are unclean for you; they shall not be eaten.  
Aha!  I thought – what about John the Locust eating Baptist?  (Cousin of Jesus, came around just before Him making the path for him)…  but then I realized 20All clean winged things you may eat  and referred back to
Leviticus 11:20-21 All the winged insects that walk on all fours are detestable to you. Yet these you may eat among all the winged insects which walk on all fours: those which have above their feet jointed legs with which to jump on the earth.So, John was within the letter of the law – and then I saw the irony of my thoughts trying to catch it out by the letter of the law (which doesn’t happen either).
