    You can trust God and still splatter the blood on your door post when the plauge comes, after all didn’t He tell you to do it. (Many pastors moved from trusting God to testing God when Covid came on the scene, and their flock paid the price.) There’s a clear praticality to belief in God that many never get. The spritual is very important; however, we cannot forget the corporal.

      That’s how I see it – we shouldn’t put God to the test and he gave us brain cells to use our common sense.

      That hunting dog expression takes me right back to my childhood in the Ozarks, to some of the happier memories. Thanks! πŸ˜€

    Thinking also about one of the very kind Episcopal rectors I have known. I feel like she’d add something about trusting God means trusting his charge to always first do unto others as we would have them do unto us. Wearing a mask is compassionate to others, and I think she’d say the most important thing she’d say was to trust God’s charge that we’re to look out for each foremost of all.

    When the devil was tempting Jesus in the wilderness, he used a partial verse from Psalm 91 to try to get Him to jump off the Temple and expect the angels to catch Him. (He didn’t.)
    (“Just sayin’ …”)
