I attacked a giant pile of paperwork over the weekend. Most of it was related to insurance, Social Security, and legal issues. I scanned more than 70 documents and probably filed an equal number – and I like to think I stay organized!
But I did find something fun in all that mess:
I wish I had dated it; it was in the late 1990’s given some other things around it.
My Bible reading must have been in 1 Kings when the thought came to document disease and disability in the Bible. And at the time I missed 2 Kings 5 – one of my favorite chapters on God’s sovereignty over disease!
But it was a start. That crumpled piece of paper eventually turned into a spreadsheet with more than 400 references to disease or disability in more than 300 Bible verses – and I didn’t include 1 Chronicles 26:10. I’ve puzzled many times over many verses!
Don’t believe anyone who tells you God isn’t interested in disability!
