Today is a day to reflect over our readings. We have begun to read the book of Revelations. As you read through this book that uses some very figurative language, I would encourage you to see the pictures painted with John’s words, as just that … a picture. Much of the imagery we encounter will be drawn from the O.T., but also it used to help us see certain spiritual concepts and it will convey emotions. So, as you read the book and John paints the pictures, don’t get caught up in the brush strokes, step back and look at the pictures being painted. I suggest when we do, we will see some very important concepts and principles that will help us we navigate through life.
