On June 11, 1962, three men went through the roof, only not down through the roof, but up. The three men weren't trying to get to Jesus, although ironically enough, they may have done just that. No, the three men, John Anglin, Clarence Anglin, and Frank Morris, went through the roof of Alcatraz, made their way to the water's edge, and launched homemade rubber boats in an attempt to escape custody. To this day, they have not been found. Authorities are not sure if they drowned in the strong currents and cold water, or if they made good on their escape plan. But determined they were.
Are you paying attention? Or are you paying attention to the wrong stuff? A voice that sounds a lot like Wisdom as we met her in Proverbs begs us to learn from past experience, so as not to spend money when we can get free stuff. The first generation liberated from Egypt died in the desert because they didn’t learn. And when the people pointed with oohs and ahhs towards current events, Jesus asked them to learn from the past to recognize that some things are not as significant as the eternal choices.
