The Blindness of Youth
Learning to See the World Rightly
It is interesting how our view of people changes even though they essentially remain the same. We are so blind when we are young, and we remain blind when we are old unless we adjust to Yahweh's way of seeing things. And yet we can also misjudge Him. And when people and things do change, it can be hard to follow what's happening.
"I am Yahweh, I shall not change, and you, O sons of Ya'aqob (Jacob), shall not come to and end" (Malachi 3:6, ISRV).
Fortunately Yahweh sees and understands all, and so long as we have the Ruach (Spirit), cultivating the soil of our hearts to receive Her, we will perceive aright - righteously. Acquired knowledge is useful but it isn't half as useful as the guidance of the Ruach Elohim (Spirit of God).
The more the complexity of life is revealed to me the more I want to make things simpler. I see the ferocious pace of life and how people get utterly lost in it. There is no time for them to pause and think out their priorities.
