It Made Me Stop and Think

created
This is a verse from the Bible. From Hebrew Scripture.
A part of a much longer story of a queen who comes to power and with her decisions can save the Jewish people from a planned anti-Semitic pogrom. As she weighs her options and considers what she might do she is told,
“Perhaps this is the moment for which you have been created.”
Perhaps.
But could the same hold true for you and me.
Ordinary people.
Everyday decisions.
Just as we are.
Right here.
Right now.
With children to raise and chores to do.
With details to attend to and work to go to.
“Perhaps this is the moment for which you have been created.”
Perhaps.
So, on the off chance this verse also applies to you and me,
Let us do our best to pay attention.

Runner, reader, ponderer, dreamer and little by little hiking the Long Trail in Vermont, Paul Alcorn is also the pastor at Bedford Presbyterian Church in Bedford, NY.
