The Remedy (1 Kings 10:1-15)
There once was a time when the whole world had played out its hand, humanity’s isolation was real and without hope. God heard the cry of despair from under the broom tree, and instead of magically fixing it, or even taking humanity out of the world, God came near.
God heard our cry and came to us, a Jewish carpenter, abandoned by virtually everyone in the end and nailed to a tree—all in the name of political expediency. That’s God’s idea of fixing things.
