Think about it: If you travel North long enough, you’ll eventually start heading South. Or, continuing South, you will one day eventually start the trip up North again. But what if you head West (young man)? You can chase that sunset all day, but if you keep heading West, you will never, ever automatically change to an Eastern heading. Or, perhaps you wish to greet the Sunrise and head East. Keep going as long as you want, but until you decide to turn around you’ll still be traveling East.
East. West. Sunrise. Sunset.
God has a few things to say about these.
As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us. (Psalm 103:12 NIV)
From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the Lord is to be praised. (Psalm 113:3 NIV)
Something to think about while greeting the day, or putting it to bed.
