The Wonderful Love of the Father

A great reminder of the chastizing aspect of the love of God. I’m reminded of comforting words of Prov 3:13 and Hebrews 12:6 that remind us that His chastisement is itself a reminder of both His love and His acceptance of us as his adopted.

No word on whether grass still grows and cows still go “mooo,” but perhaps he’ll illuminate those issues some other time.

And, although climates change, and climates have always changed because change is an essential characteristic of “climate,” he didn’t actually respond to the slightly more contentious question about whether or not human beings are significant drivers of climate, as opposed to other relevant forces, like, say, the Sun (a million times bigger than the Earth, contains 99.8 percent of the mass of the Solar System, reaches temperatures of 15 million degrees Celsius — maybe that ol’ girl really calls the shots on this planet).
