The Bible tells us to ask … seek … and knock. We will find it. It will be given to us. So maybe we should be careful about what we want. These things have a way of working themselves out differently than what we anticipated.
That’s the message behind this cartoon. The diocese is putting the last minute touches on their big, bicentennial plans. Bishop Robert seems pleased enough, but then, his Cathedral mouse Herman decides to complain that he was not in charge of a committee. As it turns out, his answer was in his question. The old bishop knew best once again!
It’s a simple lesson. The Bible has many life lessons in it. We call them Gold Nuggets, and we’re developing a Bible study series right now around that concept. Stay tuned (as the older folks sometimes say), and we’ll have more to say on that subject as summer approaches.
