Not As It Seems

Filed under: Uncategorized — by ginrich @ 1:06 am

 Isa 11:3.-4  He will not judge by what he sees with his eyes, or decide by what he hears with his ears; but with righteousness he will judge the needy, with justice he will give decisions for the poor of the earth.


We are so easily deceived with our eyes.  When we look on someone we are so quick to judge by what we see, or think we see.  We fail to ask God to allow us to see others the way He does, as children maybe lost and/or confused, who He loves greatly.  This photo was taken by one of my grandsons.  It appears to be a butterfly liting on a flower.  The flower is actually silk.  I found the butterfly on the ground of a parking lot, fluttering one wing. I picked it up and held it in the wind hopeing it would fly but, it was in the process of dying.  I brought it home and placed it in the silk flower.  Comments on the photo were, “Nice capture.”  Actuallly it was a nice set-up.  When we look at others we need to know all is not as it seems.  We do not know where they have walked, what they are facing.  We need to quit judging and remember we are all loved by God and are to love each other and reach out and help each other.
