Bridge building

God doesn’t build bridges, He divides seas.

John Piper (2007)

This quote is from one of John Piper’s blog posts, and reminds me that God’s ways are not ours (Isaiah 55:8). Also noteworthy is Piper’s following (and sobering) comment:

Usually [God’s] people must pass through the deadly currents of suffering and death, not simply ride over them.
