Back And Forth
Referring to comprehending the Scriptures in their context,
Martin Luther said,
"...we read the Bible forward, but..we understand it backwards."
In a parallel statement, regarding interpreting our life in light of its eternity,
"Life ...(is) understood backwards; but... lived forward. "
This leads me to believe there is a lot I have yet to sort out!
