This week Cee has challenged us to display the idea behind BRIDGES with our photography.
Please click the link above to see how Cee’s other contributors have displayed the concept.
Here are my thoughts:
I think Isaac Newton was right when he said,
We build too many walls and not enough bridges.
This world desperately needs more bridges and more bridge-builders.
After all bridges are those things we cross to meet each other. Somehow we have come to think that f we cross over to meet people on the other side of things that means we are coming into total agreement with them. Who taught us that?
Did Christ agree with us in our sin when He went to the cross for us? When he bridged the gap between God and man was that a tacit acceptance of or an agreement with our sin?
Or was it simply a sign that He understood that unless He came to us there was no way we were going to come back to Him?
If God crossed such a great divide to reach us, how is it that we think we are required to do less in coming to the side of those we disagree with? If Jesus could love and pray for those who wanted to kill Him (while never coming into agreement with them) are we to do any less in our current disagreements?
Now there’s a meditation to be thunk on for a bit!
