In my Bible reading, I'm in the last book of the Penatuch. (Which only sounds impressive if you don't know that's the first 5 books of the Bible.) I was listening to it on my ipad while I was making dinner the other night and found myself thinking, "Yeesh, he's repeating himself!" I wondered if Ol' Mo' was starting to get a little senile there at the end. Then a child ran through the kitchen and I found myself hollering to the feet flashing by, "Shut the DOOR!" Something I've said hundreds, if not thousands of times in my parenting career. And it hit me. We're like that. God was repeating himself on purpose. Because even though He said it over and over again, we still get it wrong. Humbling thought.
