Prayer 38: bible muddles

Dear God,

I don’t want to seem to be interfering, but was there any particular reason for making the bible so confusing in some respects and downright impossible in others? I would have thought it would have been a lot simpler just to say what You mean so it was obvious to everyone, rather than going round and round the houses with lot of different people trying to declare Your word to the world and getting in a muddle. Or at least that’s how the bible seems to me, more often than not.

On the other hand, I suppose people are Your business and so doing anything without our input would be against Your great mission statement and delight. So thank You for loving us so much that You’re prepared for us to make a muddle, even in the bible, and thank You also that You’re equally willing to help put things right.
