There was a girl blind at birth. She had never seen…Her family would describe what the sky looked like in detail to her. She would go to school and describe to her other blind friends all the details of the sky, AS IF she had seen it.
One day God healed her of her blindness. She was able to see what the sky REALLY looked like. She saw the different colors, the different layers, the vastness, the beauty, how the sky melted into itself.
This is what God wants us to have with him. A first hand relationship with him, a deep relationship with him. He does not want us to see him through others eyes, he does not want us to only rely on what others teach us but to be lead by the spirit, by God.
