Reflecting

I’m really liking Sara Miles

“In the verse, Moses foreshadowed Jesus with an unusual emphasis on experienced grace rather than codified religious law. “Surely, this commandment that I am commanding you today is not too hard for you, nor is it too far away,” he told his people. “It is not in heaven, that you should say, ‘Who will go up to heaven for us, and get it for us so that we may hear it and observe it?’ Neither is it beyond the sea, that you should say, ‘Who will cross to the other side of the sea for us, and get it for us so that we may hear it and observe it?’ No, the word is very near to you; it is in your mouth and in your heart for you to observe.” — Sara Miles on Deuteronomy in Take This Bread

“…it is in your mouth and in your heart for you to observe.” It’s that close. Amen.
