Tailored. What comes to mind when I read that word is a suit. Who comes to mind when I read that word? Pip. You might have to deep dive back to middle school to find a reference to this young fellow. If that dive is effective, Pip will form again into the shape of a young boy Charles Dickens created. Holding the highest position in Great Expectations we see his life unfold from some scary moments on an English marsh toward a London life with expectations. When these expectations first found him through attorney Jaggers Pip was a blacksmith’s apprentice. Are you remembering any of this? The clothes of such an apprenticeship are unsuitable for expectations so off to Trabb the tailor he went. That is how the word tailor is tacked to the walls of my mind.
Look now at 1 John 5:9.
9 If we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater, for this is the testimony of God that he has borne concerning his Son. (1 John 5:9–ESV)
