...you thought I was altogether like you.

that phrase has been coming to mind for the past few days... not really sure why. other than the at bible study one of the girls is having a real hard time with God's character in the OT. she thinks he is very different than in the NT, which is kinda true. But reminded us of Job and his demand for an answer to his questions... as far as i remember Job never did get an answer- but fell on his face before God after God's long monologue about "who laid out the waters and created the earth" so this verse is maybe a summary of all that to me- that it is a mistake to think God is altogether like me... (Psalm 50.21)
