“Lord, my heart is not haughty, nor my eyes lofty. Neither do I concern myself with great matters, nor with things too profound for me” (Psalm 131:1).
At least, I hope that’s true of me.
A young minister texted to say he was studying the various explanations and interpretations about the day of the Lord’s actual crucifixion, the number of days/nights He was in the tomb, etc. “What is your theory?” he wanted to know.
I replied that I don’t have a theory, that for a lot of reasons such questions do not bother me.
He did not say whether that was a satisfactory answer. But it’s the truth.
A lot of things I used to obsess about and study and address in sermons no longer bother me. Part of it–I would hope all of it–results from a mature perspective of the world and the call of God. Some things just do not matter to me that much. If you the reader disagree, that’s fine and it’s your privilege. I’m not saying the Lord makes all His disciples the same. The variety of His gifts and calls seems endless.
