We have thoughts faster than our mind can process. They’re not always about others, often they’re about ourselves.
…someone didn’t return our call – they must be mad…
…no thank you for the meal – it must have been bad…
Walking down the street, Jesus saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked, “Rabbi, who sinned: this man or his parents, causing him to be born blind?”
Jesus said, “You’re asking the wrong question. You’re looking for someone to blame. There is no such cause-effect here. Look instead for what God can do.
John 9:1-4 Message
This blind man was healed with spit and mud. Some thought that impossible and others were upset it happened on a Sabbath. Were they looking at the right thing?
God did not create in black and white. He has great imagination. He likes the word mystery and speaks in parables…not to confuse but because He wants to be the one to help us to understand.
Note to self: stop trying to figure it all out on my own…listen to Him.
