A WANDERING MIND

                

     Every once in a while I let my mind wander, and sometimes it wanders into some pretty fruitful places that help me see the things of God more clearly. This is one of those times:

     I was sitting at Hy-Vee on Tuesday waiting to have breakfast with Lem and reading my devotional material for the day. At one point I looked out the window and noticed the wind blowing a small tree beside the parking lot. As I looked at the top of the tree the parking lot faded from sight and all I could see were the branches and leaves blowing against a partly cloudy sky. For some reason the picture reminded me of images in Bible movies of small trees blowing in the desert breeze. 

     I thought of a fig tree like the one Jesus cursed in Matthew and Mark, but I’ve never seen a fig tree, so I don’t know if the one in the Hy-Vee parking lot looks like a fig tree or not. But I do know that tree had leaves, and those leaves blew in the wind, just like those blowing on Tuesday morning. That is when my mind wandered into fertile ground.

     The fig tree in Matthew and Mark was a real tree. The winds that blew up the storm on the Sea of Galilee was real wind, just like we have today. All the people, places and things recorded in the Bible were real just like they are today. And God was there, working in that real place just like he is today.

     I think sometimes we can easily see the Bible as distant, almost mystical or even magical stories of mystical and magical people who experienced God in a mystical or magical way. But they were real people, just like you and me, who struggled with their faith, doubted, questioned and wrestled with living a life that pleased God just like you and I. And that makes it all more real.

 

Think about it.
