A thought I've had on and off for years grabbed me again this morning:
Wouldn't it be great to live a life story so compelling only God could claim credit for it?
In the Old Testament, God had a reputation. It would have been absurd to claim personal credit for the parting of the Red Sea or for the collapse of the walls of Jericho. The people of God were caught up in events so big only God could plausibly get credit.
