Why don't they get it?
How many times have you said that or thought that? I am sure it is dozens and dozens of times. As a mom we can become frustrated with repeating ourselves over and over again in the training of our children. These words or thought can also pour out through other areas of life as well....just being alive gives reason for the frustration. Hey! let's be honest, life is just messy.
- Health - don't they get it? You can't eat that type of food and be healthy. You can't refuse to exercise and hope your body just continues to stay in shape. You can't neglect going see the doctor if there is something going on.
- Relationships - Do they not see what is happening here? Do they just not get it? Do they have to see the relationship end before their eyes are open?
- Spiritually - Do they not get it? This is an eternal issue. Christ died for their sins...plain and simple, salvation is a gift. Why can't they see?
- Financially - Don't they understand that too few deposits and too many withdraws mean you are in the negative? Do they just not get it?
It seems to always be clearer to the one viewing from the outside. The person viewing from their tower can see so plainly what is happening, "they get it", while the one below is hindered by their lack of vision.
How can a blind person see the sunset? We would ever question their ability "to get it" and yet when someone's view is obstructed they too are blind.
I climb down from my tower of frustration viewpoint allowing the Lord to show me my blind spots. I need Him to show me a clearer view. I need to see the view of my own "not getting it" and grace for those I love that "aren't getting it". I need Him to remind me that He knows "they aren't getting it" and He is in control. His view is complete, while mine is only a partial view.
May we all allow His point of view to become the glasses in which we view our circumstances through, while giving grace to those who "just aren't getting it".
However, as it is written: "No eye has seen, no ear has heard, no mind has conceived what God has prepared for those who love him. I Cor. 2:9
