Out of sane, insane, you are outta your mind! Words that evoke an immediate response, whether spoken or not. We all want to preserve what little dignity we have, ( if any at all) and who wants to be told they are pretty much out to lunch.
Truth be told, we are all a few doughnuts short in the box, regarding something. The ant is clueless as to making a spider’s web, and the wasp is lost in space as to the making of honey. The most specialized of insects are ignorant to something. But man are they experts in their chosen field.
Unfortunately, humans are not insects, and do not know everything, even in a specialized field. Fortunately, there is One who knows everything, is a specialist in every field, has understanding which is infinite, is wise above all, knows all about the yesterdays, todays, and tomorrows, and has all the hairs of our head counted.
He is well aware of the unsearched depths of the world’s waters, (of which we know less than .01 per cent) He is well aware of the plotting by world leaders, He is well aware of the exact location of the next 19 earthquakes and their precise time down to the second, He is well aware of every single lumens given by every star in the heavens, and nothing on earth escapes His notice. Nothing. Of course. He is the Almighty.
He is well aware of the mind numbing lies against His very being, His word, the deceit, the theft, and the accusations against the character of good people who simply rest in the nature of His presence. Heck, I’d be happy to be just in His shadow.
But to be in the right mind, begins with the knowledge of the Lord above all. Reverential awe, also known as fear, is the starting point for this sanity of mind. Anything else is just ignorance, whether intentional or not.
Maybe we do need to consider the ant…he is insane as to the building of a beavers dam, but boy is he expert in carrying a load, and has a work ethic second to none. But in fulfilling his purpose, he is completely sane, so the question is fair: are you fulfilling YOUR purpose, are you sane, and WHO designed that purpose. (ouch, WHO…?)
Hint: leave out God, and you fail the test, but you do get the consolation prize of 9 cookies which in the world where there are no absolutes, amounts to a dozen. Who then could rightfully argue with such liberalism?
But go ahead, cite believers as insane, and we will thank you for the compliment. A sound mind is the most majestic possession.
