Do we find ourselves "having to look for the GOOD" in others? Looking past the "bad" just to find a "sliver of GOOD". Do we not "SEE" the obvious, when it has been there all of the time? In the middle of the night, surrounded by darkness, a "flash of light" is BLINDING; while standing in the same place during the DAY, the SAME LIGHT becomes REVEALING. LIGHT, when we are surrounded by darkness, BLINDS US; while LIGHT surrounded by LIGHT, lets us see more CLEARLY. Maybe similar to Paul on his way to Damascus. At first he was BLINDED but then he began to see GOD in everything because he looked upon things and people differently. 1 Corinthians 13:8, "LOVE NEVER ENDS..." When LOVE is missing, we see things differently. No one (Moses or Paul) has seen the FACE OF GOD because we cannot look upon the FULL GLORY OF GOD. Maybe we no longer have to look "past the bad" to see the GOOD IN OTHERS; because WITH LOVE (THE LIGHT) WE SEE THE GOD IN OTHERS. DO WE SEE GOD IN OTHERS; OR HAS THE LIGHT BLINDED US?
