…we look not at what can be seen but at what cannot be seen; for what can be seen is temporary, but what cannot be seen is eternal.” vs. 18

2 Corinthians 4:17-5:1

In recent years, some scientists, after generations of observations and calculations, have concluded that there is more to reality than meets the eye. While that notion may seem strange to secularists, it’s no surprise to people of faith, and was very familiar to the apostle Paul. Everything that he counted as important in his life could not be seen by human eyes. For generations believers have clung to this basic truth: beyond and within all the “stuff” of the universe, God is! And more than that, every creature of land, sky, and sea, including humans, is more than what we see. Everything that exists contains the essence of the Creator; all is sacred! What a difference this makes in our approach to self and to others as we live, love, and work in this world. No longer will we be able to discount and marginalize those who are different. No longer will we be able to carelessly ravage the environment. No longer will we thoughtlessly disparage people with contrary political beliefs. Since we too are the dwelling place of God and the temple of the Holy Spirit we will take care of our minds and bodies. That which was made in the image of the Divine has intrinsic holiness and deserves our daily love and attention. And if we look really closely we will even catch a glimpse of God!

Thought for the Day: Where do I most often glimpse God?
