Lesson of the Horse Mask (Psalm 119:37)

NatureLandscapeNon-Christians often make conclusions about the Bible similar to the one I made about the mask. They think of it as something puts over our eyes to keep us from seeing all the fun we could be having. They feel sorry for Christians because they think the Lord keeps us from enjoying life. What I didn’t know about the horse mask, they don’t know about the Bible. It doesn’t keep us from seeing all that is good; it keeps us from being infected by lies that cause spiritual blindness. The Bible doesn’t keep us form enjoying life; it makes true enjoyment possible.

The Bible doesn’t keep us from knowing the truth; it prevents us from believing lies. – Julie Ackerman Link

O send Thy Spirit, Lord, now unto me
That He may touch my eyes and make me see;
Show me the truth concealed within Thy Word,
And in Thy Book revealed I see Thee, Lord. – Lathbury

When we see the world through the filter of the Word, we learn the truth about both.
