DAVID JEREMIAH TODAY | THE GREATEST PROMISE IN THE BIBLE
Fellow pastor and author, Paul Tripp, captured my thoughts precisely when he wrote these words about camping. He said, “I am persuaded that the whole purpose of camping is to make a person long for home. On that first day in the woods, putting up the tent is exciting, but three days later, your tent has unpleasant odors you can’t explain. You love the taste of food cooked over an open flame, but three days later, you’re tired of looking for wood and irritated by how fast it burns. You were excited at the prospect of catching your dinner from the stream running past your campsite, which is reported to be teeming with trout, but so far, you’ve just been able to catch the roots at the bottom of the stream. You’re now four days in; your back hurts. There seems to be no more wood to forage, and you’re tired of keeping the fire going anyway. You look into what was once an ice-and-food-filled cooler to see the family-sized steaks you have reserved, floating gray and oozing in a pool of blood-stained water. Suddenly, you begin to think fondly of home. You stand there hoping that someone will just break the silence and say, ‘Why don’t we just go home?’ Your four days in the wilderness have accomplished their mission. They have prepared you to appreciate home”.
