"German feet wear shoes."
Huh? Say what? What's wrong with this quote?
Well ... for one thing, it's what I gleaned from a daily devotional I read earlier today before equipping my eyeballs with glasses. OIY!
The sentence actually reads: "Genuine faith wears shoes."
Then again ... maybe there's a lesson here somewhere. There always is.
All of life, and certainly God's word, is best read & assessed with clear sight. Even one's inner sight - vision - works best in the same fashion. I fear I have erred on occasion (or several such), by navigating, Mr. Magoo style, and peering (as if certain) at something that is actually quite fuzzy or blurred. Come to think of it, it's the hazard of humanity:
For we know in part and we prophesy in part,
but when completeness comes, what is in part
When I was a child, I talked like a child,
I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child.
When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood
For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror;
then we shall see face to face.
Now I know in part; then I shall know fully,
even as I am fully known.
1 Corinthians 13:9-12
So now my glasses sit atop my devotional, lest I befuddle myself another day.
FOOTNOTE: I wholeheartedly believe that my faithful German friends were shoes.
