“We played the pipe for you, but you did not dance; we sang a dirge, but you did not mourn.” (Matthew 11:17)
“God has marked out every nation’s appointed time and boundaries so that we would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is never far from any of us.” (Acts 17:26-27)
