A crossover from the church bible challenge blog, just because I kind of liked it.
Exodus 40; Psalm 30; Mark 3
“Whenever the cloud was taken up from the tabernacle, the Israelites would set out on each stage of their journey; but if the cloud was not taken up, then they did not set out until the day that it was taken up.”
A lesson in not getting ahead of God.
A parable of patience.
Oblivion to the signs of the timeless leads only to oblivion itself;
haste makes waste.
Forty years is but forty winks in the eyes of The Lord.
How long, O Lord, how long?
Silence, say the smoke signals; patience.
Follow me. You will not lead me on;
I will not steer you wrong.
A parable of patience;
a lesson in listening,
in not getting ahead of God.
