Boomerang

Scripture reading

Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the Lord.
–Lamentations 3:40

Thought of the Day

If you live in Sidney, Australia and you have a boomerang, the odds are that Duncan MacLennan made it and he might have even taught you how to throw it. The eighty year old MacLennen has shown over 100,000 people over the past forty years how to throw the carved piece of wood and make it return. The secret is getting the proper angle to the wind and a good spin to ensure its return. You know, I had a boomerang once when I was younger. I got tired of it and tried for years to throw it away. It drove me crazy. It kept returning. I’m not sure who wrote Lamentations, but whoever it was knew as much about the importance of returning as Duncan MacLennan does. Maybe we ought to learn from both of them.

Prayer

Father, I want to return to you. Amen.
