Today, Paul and I went for coffee (I was picking up from the co-op, which is sort of near his work). We were talking about a work issue he had, and how he knew there was a problem in a certain situation. Without thinking I said, "Oh, so you saw the writing on the wall". Then I realized I was using the idiom that we had learned got its source from Daniel (Daniel 5:5, if you want to look it up!). I explained all this to Paul - not sure how interested he was, but I was very proud of myself for remembering this!
Malachi: a messenger sent to a spiritually wretched people
- can apply as much today as it did back then.
A Chesterton quote from the study:
"God had written, not so much a poem, but rather a play;
a play he had planned as perfect, but which had necessarily been left
to human actors and stage-managers, who had since made a great mess of it.”
