"Because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth." (Jer 31:4)
I dreamt I was in a room full of people, watching some girls dancing through a window. The first girl danced rather robotically and stiff. I was disappointed that she didn't put very much effort into her dancing. Then the second girl came out. At first she danced rather shyly and reserved. But during the Grand Finale she suddenly broke loose and gave it her all. The crowd gave her a standing ovation.
There was a structure in which to put tips for the girls. I put 2 dollars into the second girl's bin. I regretted that the first dancer didn't shine this brightly. If she had, I would have gladly tipped her as well.
Below is an interpretation of the number 2 taken from E.W. Bullinger's website:
We now come to the spiritual significance of the number Two. We have seen that One excludes all difference, and denotes that which is sovereign. But Two affirms that there is a difference.
When the earth lay in the chaos which had overwhelmed it (Gen 1:2), its condition was universal ruin and darkness. The second thing recorded in connection with the Creation was the introduction of a second thing—Light; and immediately there was difference and division, for God DIVIDED the light from the darkness.
The second of any number of things always bears upon it the stamp of difference.
Are you the first or second dancer? God wants you to break out of your shell and dance like you've never danced before. Let's live out loud!
