Of Kings and Character

Our second reading today is Romans 11.

It is way too long to dissect here, so let me leave you with the words of the final verses, a doxology…


Oh, the depth of the riches of the wisdom and knowledge of God!
    How unsearchable his judgments,
    and his paths beyond tracing out!
‘Who has known the mind of the Lord?
    Or who has been his counsellor?’
‘Who has ever given to God,
    that God should repay them?’
For from him and through him and for him are all things.
    To him be the glory for ever! Amen.

These final verses speak to our King, whose wisdom and mercy we cannot even fathom. 

May we ever be thankful that our King is far greater, far more just, and far more glorious than we, or any earthly king could ever be.
