But so many of us are like the man in the mirror--you know, the one who gazes upon his reflection, then turns and walks away, forgetting what he has just seen. We read, then promptly forget what we just read. Even the words written in the best-selling book of all time--The Holy Bible. Lest I lead you astray, I am just as guilty of this as any one of you. My soul stirs every time I pick up this book and read it. I am empowered. I am capable. I am ready for anything. Yet, as soon as I put it down, the words fade. It's hard to remember it all--it's even harder in incorporate it all into my life. Still, I ain't no quitter so I will keep my hand on the plow, so to speak, and forge ahead. Just because I fail on some points, I can succeed in others. Eventually I will wind up--well, you know where I'll wind up. You're gonna wind up there too.
Reading is not all about words, however. Seeing underneath the surface, 'reading' between the lines, hearing what isn't being said---these things are so important in our lives. As representatives and friends of the King, we have to be able to see things that others might miss--otherwise, someone might miss the touch of the Master's hand.
So, I return to my question. Can you really read? Are you sure?
