How Long O Lord
"How long must we wait Lord?" Lucy interprets the 6th Chapter of Isaiah for Charlie Brown, and perhaps for us, although I prefer not to accept the "finality of the Lord's judgment."
In fact, the Lord is not Lucy-like waiting to pull the ball away as a form of judgment. The Lord always holds the ball straight and steady. The problem is us when we blow the kick and whiff.
We fall down when we take our eyes off the ball and the Lord who urges us, "Steady, the time is now, so start living. The answer to your question, 'How long?' is 'now."
Deacon David Pierce
