God Will Not Be Contained

Session 4.30 for July 22, 2012

In today’s text we read of David’s desire to build a temple for God. God tells David, “Are you the one to build me a house to live in? I have not lived in a house since the day I brought up the people of Israel from Egypt to this day, but I have been moving about in a tent and a tabernacle.” God reminds David that God is bigger than any one place and cannot be contained by people. In our efforts to understand theology and grow spiritually, sometimes we are like David – trying to contain God to fit our perceptions and limited understanding.
