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,


Kierkegaard said: "Life ...(is) understood backwards; but... lived forward. "


This leads me to believe there is a lot I have yet to sort out!


Excelsior!
