Life, according to Jesus, is like the medieval symbol of life, a great WHEEL OF FORTUNE. It just keeps moving around and around. Jesus’ point is simply that those at the top, with the wind blowing in their hair, will eventually have their turn at the bottom. And those at the bottom, in the mud and the mire, will one day fly with the eagles. They may not think so. Being at the bottom is debilitating, but things change even when you are there in the pit.
