Run John, Run

Run, John, run, the law commands
But gives us neither feet nor hands,
Far better news the gospel brings:
It bids us fly and gives us wings.

John Bunyan

    Good stuff, and quite an image: trying to run on feet-less stubs vs soaring. This reminds me of what I’ve felt living in a Muslim-majority context: I feel an affinity with the goal of Islam (worship/righteousness), but the details get troublesome and in the end there are no “wings with which to fly”.
