Sunday School… on Tuesday?

21 11 2006

Today, Jeremy called with computer problems saying that he was having startup issues. He said that the last time his computer started it took him seven tries till it finally started and this time after five tries he gave up and deemed it not working.

I had an old Sunday School story in my head of some guy washing himself seven times in the river to cure himself of leprosy but he didn’t see the connection. To convince myself that I wasn’t making this one up, I looked it up and found it in 2 Kings 5.

10 Elisha sent a messenger to say to him, “Go, wash yourself seven times in the Jordan, and your flesh will be restored and you will be cleansed.”

11 But Naaman went away angry and said, “I thought that he would surely come out to me and stand and call on the name of the LORD his God, wave his hand over the spot and cure me of my leprosy. 12 Are not Abana and Pharpar, the rivers of Damascus, better than any of the waters of Israel? Couldn’t I wash in them and be cleansed?” So he turned and went off in a rage.

13 Naaman’s servants went to him and said, “My father, if the prophet had told you to do some great thing, would you not have done it? How much more, then, when he tells you, ‘Wash and be cleansed’!” 14 So he went down and dipped himself in the Jordan seven times, as the man of God had told him, and his flesh was restored and became clean like that of a young boy.

I guess the lesson being – always do things seven times before giving up!
