A human being lives, but he is given life.
So the last time I went off topic I talked about colors and how we need to live them to their fullest and the down side to living in an all-one color world. Well today I was thinking about that post and it got me to thinking about; how do we get out of the one color world and live in a world full of colors? And it hit me as I was rereading that post “partners”.
There are many names for them such as; Associates, Allies, Buddies, Spouses, Lovers, cohorts and so many others but you get the Idea, but the point I am trying to make is that we need them. It may be in our personnel or professional life but the thing is without them we are one sided and we are living in just one color. It is only through our partner that we see the other colors.
There is an old saying that I know everyone has heard “opposites attract” and I believe that is true but it is not the whole truth. The thing is we need our partner to be similar to us but at the same time we need then to see the colors we cannot. Just think if we had a partner that saw the same colors that we see then they would be of no help to us.
So this is where God comes in to the equation. He knew that on our own we could not experience the world that He created for us in the fullest; I think that is why in (Gen. 2:18) “The LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him.”’ You see, when we have a partner in life we can learn to see the world that God created through their eyes also. How many times have you looked at something and seen one thing just to hear someone say “no I see” and then and only then are you able to see what they saw.
(Eph. 5:29-31) says; “After all, no one ever hated their own body, but they feed and care for their body, just as Christ does the church— for we are members of his body. “For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.”’ God took part of Adam so that when brought together the two parts would make one whole and without each other we would be but part of the equation. A partner was one of the first gifts God gave to man and was about the only thing that God allowed Adam and Eve to take out to the garden.
So why am I writing about this? Well it all come back to the one conversation about my house and the colors I chose to paint it. I saw God in all the colors I chose and the other person saw God in the white. Both are right and only through the other persons outlook on life where we able to see everything that God had given us.
Like in all things God speaks to us in many ways, just remember that there are many ways to lesson, we lesson with our ears with our hearts and my father once told me “if I was not going to lesson to him with my ears then I would lesson with my back side”. Just be open to whatever form God is speaking to you today and when you find your partner hold on to them and try to see the world through their eyes as much as possible.
