Today is going to be hot, just as yesterday was and tomorrow will be!!! But, winter is coming and all too soon our friends up North will see their first snowstorm. And, as storms go, this one seems to be a duesy! Could it get worse? YES, because I remember driving through one that was a "white out". After awhile of driving in it, I actually had to use sunglasses to keep from driving off the road.
I look at this picture and think: our life is like a snowstorm: we see things physically, but reality is only a dim reflection of the true nature of the universe, and that is spiritual in composition. And then there is this chapter of the Bible...
1 Corinthians, Chapter 13 (WEB)
1 If I speak with the languages of men and of angels, but don’t have love, I have become sounding brass, or a clanging cymbal.
2 If I have the gift of prophecy, and know all mysteries and all knowledge; and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but don’t have love, I am nothing.
3 If I dole out all my goods to feed the poor, and if I give my body to be burned, but don’t have love, it profits me nothing.
4 Love is patient and is kind; love doesn’t envy. Love doesn’t brag, is not proud,
5 doesn’t behave itself inappropriately, doesn’t seek its own way, is not provoked, takes no account of evil;
6 doesn’t rejoice in unrighteousness, but rejoices with the truth;
7 bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will be done away with. Where there are various languages, they will cease. Where there is knowledge, it will be done away with.
9 For we know in part, and we prophesy in part;
10 but when that which is complete has come, then that which is partial will be done away with.
11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child, I felt as a child, I thought as a child. Now that I have become a man, I have put away childish things.
12 For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I will know fully, even as I was also fully known. (emphasis added GDR)
13 But now faith, hope, and love remain—these three. The greatest of these is love.
Occasionally, just ever so often, we see genuine true love, and when we do, we have a reflection of heaven....
I wonder if they will pass out sunglasses in HEAVEN???
