Brush strokes

Wednesday January 31st, 1 Corinthians 13: 9 We don't know everything, and our prophecies are not complete. 10 But what is perfect will someday appear, and what isn't perfect will then disappear. 11 When we were children, we thought and reasoned as children do. But when we grew up, we quit our childish ways. 12 Now all we can see of God is like a cloudy picture in a mirror. Later we will see him face to face. We don't know everything, but then we will, just as God completely understands us. 13 For now there are faith, hope, and love. But of these three, the greatest is love. Whatever you do, you will not get it completely right no matter how hard you try, so no use to get too uptight about it. Give it your best. Let love be your guide. Let God’s love be your illumination. Remember there is a danger in trying to do it all perfectly right. Too many in that situation use the scripture as a drunk uses a lamppost, for support rather than illumination (WSCoffin). In the next life we will get to see what it was suppose to look like, what the panoramic view shows, but for now, let love guide your ways. In doing so, I think we will find that when we do see that great panoramic view, we will see that our few brush strokes were just what was needed, and it was God’s hand that was guiding us all along.
