 “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves

be burdened again by a yoke of slavery” (Galatians 5:1, NIV).

“For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall
understand fully, even as I have been fully understood” (1 Corinthians 13:12, RSV).
       Seven years ago, my family and I traveled to Burlington, Vermont. During the visit I was
introduced to the concept of a “Witch Window.” A witch window is turned sideways and placed at
a forty-five degree angle in a farmhouse’s gable-end wall.

“ Until you grow old. I am the one, and until you turn gray I will support you. I have
done it, and I will continue to bear it; I will support and I will rescue”
(Isaiah 46:4, GNT).

     The yearbooks are out. It’s that time of year when we discover who is the most likely to be eaten by a T-Rex or who has the greatest odds of finding Jimmy Hoffa. (At my ten-year reunion, I was voted least likely to do what I do professionally.)



“Do for others what you want them to do for you: this is the meaning of the Law of Moses and of the teachings of the prophets” (Matthew 7:12, GNT).


     They say that necessity makes strange bed fellows. Who would conceive that a tarantula and a frog would become faithful friends? It’s true. Microhylids, or narrow-mouth frogs, live with tarantulas and feed on the tiny insects that burrow into the ground and eat the spiders’ eggs.



1 Corinthians 9:19-23, ESV

19 For though I am free from all, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win more of them. 20 To the Jews I became as a Jew, in order to win Jews. To those under the law I became as one under the law (though not being myself under the law) that I might win those under the law. 21 To those outside the law I became as one outside the law (not being outside the law of God but under the law of Christ) that I might win those outside the law. 22 To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak. I have become all things to all people, that by all means, I might save some. 23 I do it all for the sake of the gospel, that I may share with them in its blessings.
