It took a year to read the Bible, then almost 9 months to read the Apocrypha. Now, I'm going to try to offer reflections on the Narrative Lectionary. But, I won't be posting daily--at least, for a while.

God's Response to Our Complaints, a Reflection on Psalm 78:23-29

"Why did you come?" Jesus had asked them. What did they expect to get from him?

Long before, the people on their way toward the promised land were complaining. They wanted food. Because their life right then was not the way they had wanted it to be, they had begun to mistrust God.

They had left their homes because they trusted God's word coming through Moses. But, they had lost their trust.

But, they had not lost their God. Although their faithfulness weakened, God provided them with the food and water they needed to be able to continue their journey, abundant food and water

It doesn't sound fair, and we can be grateful for that.
