Today's Reading - Deuteronomy 29

But to this day the Lord has not given you heart to understand or eyes to see or ears to hear.

...sounds like Luther's Bondage of the Will.  Calls to mind Acts 16:14 about Lydia.

The secret things belong to the Lord our God, but the things that are revealed belong to us and to our children forever, that we may do all the words of this law.

...sounds like Luther's huge distinction between the hidden/revealed and how we don't go nosing around in the hidden things by trying to answer theological questions Scripture itself has not revealed the answer to with our own speculations.

The same thought crossed my mind as I read it this morning.
