We have heard it said and perhaps have even said it ourselves that love is blind, but I say now that love sees, and that only love sees precisely because it is blind. Huh? What do I mean but that when we say that love is blind we're saying that it is relatively blind to the faults and failures of the beloved. This enables it and liberates it to lay hold of the highest possibilities and promise in the loved one. The loving spouse, the dearest friend, the closest brother or sister --- these are the ones who view us akin to the way God views us. Their praise and affirmation, even if it be in the form of a challenge, are what create pathways for blessing to flow into our lives. (In fact the word "kin" has the same root as the word "kind.") And so these are the ones who possess the most truth about who we really are and what we are called to do. Yet we have been accustomed to search hardest for this truth outside that circle of love where there is a world of hurt and an abysmal lack of understanding. As a consequence then we look to those core relationships on the rebound, primarily to salve the pain of our disappointment.
