I was just reading Cornelis Houtmann's commentary on Exodus 15:22-27...

"On purpose he does not lead the people straight, without pain and trouble, to the promised land. He uses the stay in the wilderness as a training school for Israel, so that they may learn to live with him and know that only with him they are safe."

Wait a second... Is this a commentary on Exodus or on life?

Hmm. It has to be one or the other, and yet which one I cannot tell.

I am currently in Deuteronomy. Similar lessons.
