Reflection — July 4th
“For his anger is but for a moment / his favour is for a lifetime.” (verse 5a)
In many ways God is a mystery. There are some things we know about God and many things we don’t. This verse fragment begs several questions. What is anger for something on the scale of God? What is the ‘scale' of God? What is ‘a moment’ for the creator of all moments? How does God experience time? How does God experience emotion? What makes God angry?
It’s fascinating and scary, but also reassuring. It may be that this verse gives us a clearer idea of what God is not rather than what God is.
God is not static.
