One of the primary overarching themes of the Days of Unleavened Bread is the redemption of Israel from their bondage in Egypt. God heard their cries and He brought them out of their affliction - sadly, despite the miracles which God performed in the process, the people of Israel continued to return to what was comfortable, what they knew and remembered. Dr. Bessel Van Der Kolk in his book, 'The Body Keeps the Score" talks about how brain and body are wired to 'run for home'. To a place that is comfortable, to what we are used to. When we consider what God is calling us to come out of, the world and its culture, its bondage to sin -- the sacrifice of His Son brought us out of our bondage, redeeming us. But when it gets tough, where do we run? Do we run to the arms of our loving Father to the 'home' that God has intended for us? Or do we run to what we're comfortable with? Right back into the world that God has called us out of? Turning to behaviors, substances, or other things to numb the pain? Do we run to that which is profitable, or that which is prodigal?
