I was flipping through a Bible commentary on Genesis — I’ll omit the name of it because it is generally just fine — when I stumbled across this sentence which, admittedly, could be read several ways. However, it struck me as funny and perhaps it will you, too:
“It is amazing how perceptive Gen. 1 is.”
Really? Amazing? I think only if we think muchly of ourselves (as I tend to) and poorly of God (as I tend to) would we be amazed at anything in the Bible or anything that God does. My challenge, of course, is to think much of God and little of me. I’m glad I’m not alone in that challenge.
