In this post Time Challies poses a thoughtful questions noting, ” It seems to me that as we ponder when and how we will emerge from our COVID-19 quarantines and lockdowns, we will have a rare chance at a kind of do-over. It is extremely unlikely that one day we will receive a society-wide all-clear signal and emerge back into life as it was. More likely is an incremental approach where over time we can begin to restore some of the functions we have had to cease for a time. We will then have to decide when and if we return to each of these activities. And there is no better time than now to be reflective about what we want our lives to be. There is no better time than now to be prayerful about how we will keep our lives from going from too empty to too full.”
This post pulls from Charles Spurgeon’s sermon “A View of God’s Glory.” As the post notes, it is the wedding of God’s goodness and sovereignty that makes God who he is.
