God at Work

February 22, 2011

A very good reminder when we think the culture has “gone to pot” or some such thing:

“One cannot read Daniel 1 attentively without noticing these three distinct theological notes, these three ‘gave’ statements [1:2, 9, 17]. And yet one has to say that in this context the Lord’s ‘giving’ has a subversive or undercover ring to it. The story begins with the dominance of a Babylonian victory and continues under the prevalence of a Babylonian culture – and yet inside all that political power and cultural saturation the God of Israel is quietly, unobtrusively, at work. And we shouldn’t miss it.”

Dale Ralph Davis, The Word Became Fresh, 23.
