It all adds up

The little things that get between me and God are dangerous.  Because they’re little, and the movement is so small, I pretty much don’t notice them.  Almost like it’s going on in secret. 

Until that moment.  When it all adds up.  To something so big that it’s obvious.  Even to me. 

And that’s the moment we see in the first reading (Isaiah).  It all just added up for Isaiah.  He gets it.  He realizes just how far away from God he is.  And Isaiah loses it. 

What happens next is surprising.  It tells us a lot about Isaiah.  But even more about God. 

More on this tomorrow.  Readings for Sunday
