Then Moses said, “I will now turn aside and see this great sight, why the bush does not burn.” (Exodus 3:3)
How many bushes burn with fire, and you don’t take the time to go and look? Most of us never encounter God as we might because when the bush burns, we turn away to the desert. But God still has taken the initiative in arresting us. It is up to us to respond. As the famed British poetess Elizabeth Barrett Browning perceptively wrote,
Earth’s crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God;
But only he, who sees, takes off his shoes,
The rest of us sit around and pick dewberries.
