To every thing its time

Ecclesiastes 3

1. To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2. A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3. A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4. A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5. A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6. A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7. A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8. A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.

So we begin a new study of God's word where I will be reading and meditating on some writings from the classics of such esteemed authorities as Augustine, John Wesley, C.S. Lewis and even Dallas Willard, to name just a few. These writers are gathered together in digest form in the book titled Devotional Classics from the Renovare' Group( I will undertake to use the Exercises and Reflections sections of each chapter as well as the scripural references to write here. So you will be tortured, entertained or bored by my commentary rather than just enl;ightened purely from the straight cannon of God's word as has been the case with the last group of posts I have made on this blog.
