I’ve continuously been staggered at the process that takes place in the migration of birds. To see the winged fowl in flight south is quite amazing, but even more astonishing is the built in mechanism inside each one of these birds that enables it to identify that it’s time to fly. It’s an invisible power that is just as real as the bird itself. The urge inside of the bird is non-material. It cannot be touched or weighed.
Even our sun is composed of atoms, invisible particles of things made up of neutrons and protons spinning in an undetectable orbit around an invisible nucleus. The sun basically is a symbol of the deceptiveness of appearance. Thing often times are not what they appear to be. Everything is more than a thing. It is a manifestation of an invisible power. Even the wedding ring is simply an outward sign/symbol of an invisible bond of affection that is unseen, but very real. Even the holding of hands with the one that you love is a simple gesture of something invisible and much deeper in the relationship. If you look in a mirror today, you’ll see your body, but not your character and personality. It’s these things that make up the real you.
Houses are visible, but homes are unseen. Churches can be seen, but the fellowship that makes up the Church is something that is invisible. Papers and documents can prove citizenship, but not patriotism. You can purchase a marriage license, but you can’t purchase love. Even birthdays and anniversaries can be measured in dollar and cents, but thoughtfulness and appreciation cannot.
The success in life lays in our ability to link ourselves to things that we cannot see.
