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.

Wisdom 11-12

A continuation of the story of the relationship between Wisdom and the people. Wisdom accompanied the through the wilderness where they got unexpected but abundant water and where they were tested, where the wicked were punished so they could learn what they should do and recognize how powerful God is. And how merciful.

Israel's enemies, Canaanites and Egyptians were punished for their abominable sins. Through those examples, Israel learned that the righteous must be kind.
