300, israel-style -- part two

baby spiders

Gideon's journey with God put him in many confrontations with his biggest weakness. Every time the challenge increased until it got to the point of getting ridiculous. It feels like after you tell your therapist you have a spider phobia, he ties you to his chair and throws five pails full of spiders to you! Exposure method. Only in a radical way. Much, much more radical way.

My heart went to Gideon as I read his story. God's treatment to me wasn't very different. I bet toward you He also won't differ much.

My suggestion? While on The Highest Therapist's chair, make sure you close your mouth so no spider can crawl in.
