It dawned on me while looking at those picture that people see things differently because they have never experienced it. To some a barbed-wire fence is a symbol of danger, privacy, and something to avoid. But to others, like myself, it is an invitation to grab the post, climb the strands, and jump to the other side to see what wonderful things await me; beautiful cool running streams, cow pastures, fields of fresh cut hay, banks of lush green clovers...
I suppose it is the same way with God. Some people see the LORD as someone to avoid, a symbol of danger, condemnation, and judgment. While others see Him as an invitation, a symbol of safety, compassion, mercy, grace, and forgiveness.
Maybe today will be the day that you put your fears of the unknown aside, grab that post, climb those strands and see what wonders await you. “O taste and see that the LORD is good: blessed is the man that trusteth in him.” ~Psalm 34:8 KJV
