Sometimes everything goes smoothly in the morning. Other times, not so much. My aunt politely calls them "the days when you wish your bed was already made." More like the days when you can't find your shoe.
In Sunday's first reading (Numbers), God called Eldad and Medad. But they missed the meeting. Afterwards, people checked on them and they were a mess. The tent collapsed on Medad, and Eldad can't find his shoe.
The impact of all of this on God? None at all. God doesn't say I'll see you when you've got it all sorted out and everything's perfect.
God doesn't wait. God starts working on them - and through them - right in the middle of their mess.
More on this tomorrow. Readings for Sunday
