1 John 3:2, "...because we shall see HIM as HE is." A lady and her young daughter sat in the seats next to me at the bus station. The little girl looked up at me and asked with her "lisp"; Mithter did you have freckles when you were a little boy"? I replied, yes. She burst into tears and turned to her mother saying, "you lied to me, you told me my freckles would go away when I grew up". As I read the scripture today I had to smile at our theological conclusions. For instance, from this scripture we deduce that morally we will be without sin; intellectually we will be without superficiality; we will be filled with the HOLY SPIRIT and Yes, our bodies will have no weaknesses or IMPERFECTIONS. Don't you just wonder sometimes what we call imperfections? Maybe GOD sees beauty in our cleft palates, droopy eye lid, shapes of our nose and YES, maybe HE sees great beauty in FRECKLES! The scripture says we shall see HIM as HE is... do you think, just maybe, the GOD in us will begin to see the GOD in each other and our whole idea of imperfection and beauty will transcend theological (or Theo-illogical) conclusions. You know, there really might be freckles in heaven.
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
