September 15, 2019, Exodus 16:1-8, 13-15 – Post 2

VII.
Did you notice my statement in Monday’s post, “ Hindsight can be a great instructor at times.”

Does that sounds a lot like, “Hindsight is 20/20.”

But, I think we know that is not always true.

The Scripture passage for our reflection this week gives evidence that hindsight can lead us to poor judgement about a current situation.

We do need to be able to review the past and “see” the moments of grace. Perhaps this kind of “seeing” is conditioned by a kind of insight that is birthed by faith and by an openness to grace.

VIII.
What do you think?

What helps you, when you review the past day, past week, or even past years, to open your mind and heart to find the graced moments?

How do you get past current problems, hurts and pains, so you can look back for grace and not be blinded by current stresses?
