I was recently meditating on the passage in Leviticus that tells us not to harvest the edges of our fields:
Often, what we think are instincts are actually intuitions. The difference is you are born with your instincts; your intuitions you can practice, polish and improve with practice and effort.
We sometimes use practical strategies to work ourselves out of the challenges that God led us into to refine our faith, expose our shortcomings and the limits of our character. God put us in that situation to grow us.
Joan Baez, put it simple and straight when she said, “Freedom’s just another word for nothing left to lose. Nothing ain’t worth nothing, but at least it’s free.”
