And just to be honest…I don’t feel it’s the “author of confusion”, just those points where reality, logic, and God’s plan do not always align.
Reading the Bible many stories bring you confusing thoughts… Jesus led a sin free life and yet how did it end for him? Others who did horrible things were people God loved and honored.
So as we go through life and find difficult people, we have to look through the eyes of God and see what He sees. Many have hidden gems the world needs and we are part of uncovering and shining them up.
Someone is hurt and retaliates in anger.
Another alone is seeking poisonous comfort.
One living in fear attacks others to keep distance.
There are many reactions to those buried and often unknown feelings. Most important is our reactions to them and showing them the jewels of His truth.
“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”
