Earthly Father, Heavenly Father - Heb 12:7-11

Once in a while, we are invited to a very special and

sacred place. This past Sunday was one of those moments as a couple of our fathers shared from their hearts. We heard how a tragedy can remind us of the preciousness of life and the importance of sharing the love of God with our children even if they are grown up. We also heard how God is present at the moment of our deepest loss. Being a father is perhaps one of life’s greatest calling and privilege. For a period of time, God entrusts us with His children. Fatherhood has the potential for life’s deepest joy but it can also bring the deepest experience of pain. In our human experience of being a father, we can have a glimpse of God who reveals Himself as Father. In some way, God must also go through the greatest of joys and the deepest of pain in His interactions with us. What a grand mystery – as our children can bring us joy, so we too can bring joy to God, our Father!

In the mid 1990’s, there was a movie called, The Shawshank Redemption, starring Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman. It was a story of a banker named Andy who was wrongfully convicted for the murder of his wife and another man and given two life sentences in Shawshank penitentiary. While he was serving his time there, he faced a lot of innocent suffering and cruel circumstances but he eventually gained the protection of the warden by helping him hide the money that he was skimming from the prison system.

The Pursuit of Wisdom - Job 28
Written by John Tsang   
Monday, 06 June 2016 14:33

 

Job 28 is an interesting chapter, NIV labelled it as, An Interlude on Wisdom. Job 28 may be the author's attempt to press the pause button on this story and to remind us to stop and reflect on what is really going on here. Through beautiful poetry, Job 28 tells us that one of humanity's greatest searches is for wisdom. There are three stanzas in Job 28; each highlighting an aspect of wisdom. In between are 2 refrains (v12 and 20), with the question, "Where can wisdom be found? Where then does wisdom come from?" Finally, the climactic answer is given in the last verse.
