If I had been in charge of the resurrection, I would have done things differently. To start with, I would have shaken the earth at its very foundations, and caused the sun to shine everywhere at the same time.

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.
