Topic: Huh? (01/21/10)

TITLE: Huh? (ii)
By Vicki GRECH


There are so many questions left unanswered in society today, mostly I believe because those people have not yet discovered God, the Creator of all that is, has and will be. So many people walk around shrugging their shoulders and rolling their eyes in disbelief of events that happen in our world. Such a common word I hear around me these days, “huh”? “What’s that all about”? Our world today seems filled with tragedy, not much news these days is good news, except of course if you know Jesus well enough. Jesus had a wealth of knowledge to offer the people, along of course with his miraculous healing capabilities. He spoke with such authority, he wasn’t big on clarity however, this was our job, to learn and later clarify the parables and stories Jesus recited. Many people, then as now were left with that one single word, “huh”? Many would leave in amazement, bewilderment and wonderment scratching their heads searching for reasoning of Jesus’ words. Strangely, how not much seems to have changed from the good old days, people seem just as confused now as they did then with The Message Jesus brought them from his Father in heaven. God, our Creator has such an in-depth wisdom of mind that none could possibly compare nor even begin to comprehend. There is I believe reason for everything that happens and much is beyond our scope of human reasoning. However, it has been my experience that when one engages in sincere study of the Bible, filled with God’s Word it is not hard to see why we cannot see. Simply for more than any other reason it seems to be that we do not “want” to truly see. As I’ve seen only too many times that when people do “see” they suddenly realize they are accountable for their actions. So, rather than admit to sin, society at large would prefer to be ignorant of it. There really is no reason for the “huh”, as God has told us for thousands of years, the answers lay with Jesus. Of course many will say they have studied the Bible and claim they “see”. However, if they did, there would be no need of the “huh” in their lives. When one takes the trouble to seriously study in-depth with sincerity in their heart, all the “huh-s’” are almost instantly removed as answers begin to unfold. Especially these days where so many instances either defy human comprehension or scientific analysis, many people begin to re-evaluate life over-all. Not only life on a global scale, but their individual lives as they struggle to understand and find meaning for these events. A common term I was raised with is; “knowledge is power”. Knowledge gives us the power to overcome all obstacles in one’s life and reasoning would naturally unfold during the course of my learning. God wrote the Bible through the Holy Spirit with people and shared His wisdom. Here is where the “huh” begins to dissolve as answers to some of life’s biggest questions unfold naturally as our minds begin to expand to a higher level. God wanted us to have the power, sadly though, many do not even want it. I believe people don’t want it, (the power), rather they prefer to claim ignorance as an excuse for the abominable sin we see man still today inflict on earth and against each other in the so-called, “civilized” world. I guess until everyone does find Jesus, many will still be saying at days’ end; “huh?"

A good rule of thumb: "RNR" "readers need relief". White space is critical. Determine where the paragraph breaks should occur, then double space between. White space tends to draw the reader, "cramming" has the opposite effect. Thankfully, someone gave me the same advice when I started.

I enjoyed reading this but next time break it down into paragraphs and space between them. It makes it easier to read and holds the readers attention. Keep writing and God bless.

An apt commentary on today's world...thanks for this thoughtful entry.

Good entry. It would be a little easier to read if you would separate the paragraphs.

PLEASE break down the article into clear paragraphs. The sheer volume of words can be intimidating unless broken into logical sections; sort of a "can't see the trees for the forest" thing.
