Paul wrote about the Kingdom of God and His purpose for man, “Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror…”(ICorinthians 13:12) There are so many things in life we don’t understand, that don’t make sense. We have a lot of “why” questions. But the very fact that we only see things as a poor reflection points to the purpose for our life on earth. We are here to learn to know God, and to grow in our walk of faith. Jesus said to Thomas, “Blessed are those who have not seen, and yet have believed.”(John 20:29) From the very first command in the Garden not to eat of the tree in the center of the Garden, man has had to learn to trust that God is wiser than he is, and knows what He is doing. We failed that first test, but all of Scripture testifies to the truth of a God of love who is seeking the best for all His creation. In spite of our dim view, and our “why” question, we can grow in faith, trusting ourselves into the hands of our Lord who has given Himself for us.
