Brilliant Writing

Today I read the following paragraph and was just blown away with the brilliance of Eugene Peterson’s writing. Enjoy!

“The opportunism with which Saul had earlier treated God is reproduced in opportunism with regard to David. Just as God had become auxiliary appendage to Saul’s royal ego, to be used but not obeyed, so David was now valued only because he was useful for musical solace and military prowess.”

I wish I could wordsmith like that!
