Buechner: downside up

Thursday, July 2, 2015
The LORD is my shepherd,
    I shall not be in want.
    —Psalm 23:1 (NIV)
    If the Lord is indeed our shepherd, then everything goes topsy-turvy. Losing becomes finding and crying becomes laughing. The last become first and the weak become strong. Instead of life being done in by death in the end as we always supposed, death is done in finally by life in the end. If the Lord is our host at the great feast, then the sky is the limit.
    ... Frederick Buechner (b. 1926), Secrets in the Dark: A Life in Sermons, Zondervan, 2007, p. 130 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 23:1; Matt. 10:39; 20:16; John 10:11; 1 Cor. 15:54-55
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, our hope is solely in You.
