1 Corinthians 2:14 - The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned.

Art is subjective. What’s beautiful and touching to one person in a painting could be weird and offensive to another. I like to keep it pretty simple when it comes to pictures or paintings. I like to know what I’m looking at - a sailboat, a farmhouse, a sprawling pasture.
Do you remember those pictures that were popular a decade or so ago, which on the surface looked like squiggly designs or uniform shapes, but when you squint your eyes just right or look beneath the surface you could see scenes of people or animals? It always took me way too long to see what was intended.
Sometimes our view of God or what He’s doing in this world or our lives can be frustrating. We want clear pictures easily discernible - a sailboat, a farmhouse. But many times in life we’re trying to figure out what those squiggly lines are trying to say.
We’ll never understand this life or God’s Word when we’re only looking through the perspective of this world. The Spirit of God helps us to understand what it all means. The Spirit gives us the right focus to see what God is trying to show us.
Look at the pictures of this life through the Spirit of God today and see beauty appear that you’ve never seen before.
