Things too mysterious to understand

There are four things that are too mysterious for me to understand:

  • an eagle flying in the sky – the Christian life is meant to be supernatural and amazing, and not a matter of strain and struggle
  • a snake moving on a rock – no more excuses for spiritual passivity! If the snake can move, you too can move on with your life!
  • a ship finding its way over the sea
  • man and a woman falling in love – French writer Blaise Pascal in his Pensées who said “Le coeur a ses raisons que la raison ne connait point” – “the heart has its reasons of which the mind knows nothing.”

And add to that an unfaithful wife: she commits adultery, takes a bath, and says, “But I haven’t done anything wrong!”  An example of how we all fool ourselves when we know we have sinned.
