Reflection — October 14th
If I was sitting where you’re sitting, I might just be thinking, ‘Oh, no, she’s going to write about the 23rd psalm; I’ve known it since childhood. I can recite it by heart. We have it at every funeral I attend, and it always makes me cry…’. Well, let me introduce you to Ben Bag-Bag, a rabbi, living about 200 years after Jesus. He says of the Jewish scriptures that we think we have mastered already, that we feel we understand, ‘Turn it, and turn it, for everything is in it. Reflect on it and grow old and grey with it. Don’t turn from it, for nothing is better than it’. The Bible is amazing.
