A Quick Take on the Way, the Truth, and the Life

“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.” – Helen Keller

In Matthew 11:25, Jesus praised and thanked God for bringing the little ones to the light while leaving some of the wise and learned in the dark. What rings the bells of truth to some may be muffled in the minds of others,[1] no matter their worldly knowledge. The truth can be interpreted in simple, surface-level Sunday school Bible readings or in more complex and meaningful ways. The truth can speak to people in prisons, people on pedestals, and people in parishes. It is not the mind of the reader that matters, but the heart.[2]

[1] 1 Corinthians 2:14 “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.” “Jeremiah 5:21 “Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not:” Luke 24:25-27 “Then he said unto them, ‘O fools, and slow of heart to believe all that the prophets have spoken: Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?’ And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.”

[2] See Luke 5:22 and Psalms 26:2 and 44:21. “For He knoweth the secrets of the heart.”
