Daylight Robbery

Was searching Bible verses for “compassion” recently to pray for Haiti and instead came across one that is uncannily relevant to our break-in incident, though it is talking about confiscation and not theft.

For you had compassion on those in prison, and you joyfully accepted the plundering of your property, since you knew that you yourselves had a better possession and an abiding one. (Hebrews 10:34)

What do you know – there is a verse that quite directly talks about losing possessions but how we have a better possession in our relationship with God that cannot be taken away!

Curiously enough, I can think of a simple mathematical equation that makes it logical to rejoice in what is lost because of what still remains:

God’s love + what God gives – what God takes away + God’s love reflected through God’s people = God’s love + God’s love reflected through God’s people

Anyways, I am done being nerdy now.

(Imogen Heap has a song called Daylight Robbery! Of course I have heard it many times and yet have no idea what the lyrics are.)
