Everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through the endurance taught in the Scriptures
and the encouragement they provide we might have hope.
There’s an old saying, that those who fail to learn the lessons of history are condemned to repeat them. It’s partly why the study of history is useful – but even more so with respect to the Word of God. Though written over the many thousands of years of human history, the relevance and applicability of its teaching continues to resonate powerfully in the 21st century.
May we indeed be those who are keen to learn the lessons and embrace the teaching of the Lord enshrined in a book that is old yet ever new.
