Falling Forward: Hindsight
For every painful experience in our lives, we often see lessons in hindsight. We gain a glimpse of what this is all just might be about. Our frustrations, our failures, our false starts, and even our frayed ends are not without meaning.
Passage: Deuteronomy 34
Then Moses climbed Mount Nebo from the plains of Moab to the top of Pisgah, across from Jericho. There the Lord showed him the whole land—from Gilead to Dan, all of Naphtali, the territory of Ephraim and Manasseh, all the land of Judah as far as the Mediterranean Sea, the Negev and the whole region from the Valley of Jericho, the City of Palms, as far as Zoar, then the Lord said to him, “This is the land I promised on oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob when I said, ‘I will give it to your descendants.’ I have let you see it with your eyes, but you will not cross over into it.” And Moses the servant of the Lord died there in Moab, as the Lord had said.
Now Joshua son of Nun was filled with the spirit of wisdom because Moses had laid his hands on him.
