O Israel, hope in the LORD from this time on and forevermore. (Psalms 131:3 NRSV)

It is my belief, and also a great comfort to me, that God knows the human spirit and heart better than anyone else. God has known for a long time that we are not a patient people. God knows that most folks don't wait very well (I think Adam and Eve first gave God this insight). God recognizes that so often our understanding of time is limited to the clock and therefore is fragmented and finite, compared to God's sense of time which is eternity.

I believe Jesus teaches us in this scripture lesson and in other places of sacred scripture that because we are the "people of God" we are to view time from a different perspective. We are to use time--not have time use us. We are not at the mercy of a secular society, because we are to move to the beat of a different drummer. We have a different clock.


Dear Jesus, help me to operate more on your time. In Jesus' name, Amen.
