They said to the woman, “We no longer believe just because of what you said; now we have heard for ourselves, and we know that this man really is the Savior of the world.” John 4:42
I came across an interesting bit of news today:
The article starts out explaining that the interpretation of color is how our brains explain the inexpressible. The article was written because of how people saw the Scottish ‘dress’ on social media, and how people interpreted the color differently. Some saw it as white and gold, and others described it as blue and black.
All the way back in Galileo’s time, theories of color existed. Most philosophers postulated that color is an intrinsic property of objects, and that when our eyes see red, blue, or yellow, they’re seeing objective reality. But that iconoclastic astronomer proposed a new theory: that color is entirely in the eye of the beholder.
This made me wonder who people will go to for the interpretation of the things they cannot understand. Like the dress, will you go to a scientist to find the answers to why people see it differently, or will you go to the Creator of the eye, itself, for answers?
Once more Jesus put his hands on the man’s eyes. Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly. Mark 8:25
Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are healthy, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are unhealthy, your body also is full of darkness. Luke 11:34
More importantly than the color of the dress, is sight itself. Jesus gives sight to the blind. He gives living water to the thirsty, and He is the light of the world!
Go to Him with all your problems. He is more than willing to help and guide you.
He has the answers, the help, the healing, the comfort, wisdom, peace, encouragement for every situation. The answers to the problems you have are found in Him, if you are willing to hear and see, and have faith.
Dear God, there are some things that we interpret falsely, because we do not understand them. I pray that You would give us eyes to see clearly, like Jesus did for the blind man. Help us to see all things clearly and correctly with spiritual eyes. Help us to look to You for the answers we seek, because the world will lead us astray. Please give me understanding and wisdom and knowledge. Keep me from being deceived. Protect and keep us in Your care. Amen.
