Some of the hardest hitting Bible studies/devotionals I read on The Bible App are from Francis Chan. Today, after describing some of the “terrible” things done in the Bible, Chan goes on to say:
The fact is, Scripture is filled with divine actions that don’t fit our human standards of logic or morality. But they don’t need to, because we are the clay and He is the Potter. We need to stop trying to domesticate God and confine Him to tidy categories and compartments that reflect our human sentiments rather than His inexplicable ways.
I wonder if we think we know better than God out of our arrogance, ignorance, or some terrible combination of both. What a wonderful difference would be made in people’s lives if we could stop having such small faith and trust our big God.
