Beware the Ides of March! Today’s texts are full of warnings. The Psalmist summons the people to always remember their salvation history. The remaining texts dwell on rebellion by those whom Moses was leading through the wilderness. YHWH never abandoned the Promise but neither are the people of God freed from the self-enacted consequences of their foolishness.
Remember them well
The times pulled from the quicksand
May memory mud stick!
A vexing question
Does prayer change angry God’s mind?
Or turn ours his way?
So faith is tested
And oft-times found sore wanting
Christ’s grace holds us firm
