Ayn Rand's Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone

I haven’t read Atlas Shrugged yet, but based on The Fountainhead I’d say Ms. Rand would approve

4 The Lord said, “Moses, this is the land I was talking about when I solemnly promised Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob that I would give land to their descendants. I have let you see it, but you will not cross the Jordan and go in.” 5 And so, Moses the Lord’s servant died there in Moab, just as the Lord had said. 6 The Lord buried him in a valley near the town of Beth-Peor, but even today no one knows exactly where.

I learned something about The Bible I never knew or thought about before. God himself buried Moses. How weird is that?

I had a great devotion yesterday that described the story of Moses disobeying God && striking the rock twice. I always thought Moses’ punishment seemed a bit harsh but apparently this was supposed to be another prophetic moment: Jesus being struck once for us. Since Moses blasphemed that moment, he wouldn’t get to enter the Promised Land. That sucks. What’s cool, though, is that God stayed with Moses through his consequence. He didn’t stick Moses in a corner to think about what he’d done, He lifted Moses up to show him the blessing laid out for the Israelites. He helped Moses through that painful moment.

Then, at the end of 120 years, God buried Moses himself. He was there the whole time, loving Moses even as Moses dealt with the backlash of his own sin. How great that God still does this for us. I don’t like facing consequence, but knowing God loves me through it as a Father certainly makes it more bearable.

This is absurdly lovely
