In 1936 Winston Churchill, out of power and in “the wilderness”, said of the British government, that they were “in strange paradox, decided only to be undecided, resolved to be irresolute, adamant for drift, solid for fluidity, all powerful for impotency”.
I always loved the word adamant. I have tried to be adamant in my life but sometimes it doesn’t work out. Things change, people change, circumstances change and the stuff I was adamant about doesn’t seem so important anymore. I looked for the word in the Bible and good old Zechariah never fails.
Zechariah 7:12 Yea, they made their hearts as an adamant stone, lest they should hear the law, and the words which the LORD of hosts hath sent in his spirit by the former prophets: therefore came a great wrath from the LORD of hosts.
The more things change…………………..
