Indistinctly, As in a Mirror


There are so many things that I don’t understand.

Not things like chemistry or quantum physics; even though I don’t have much knowledge of either of those, given the time and opportunity, I could gain an understanding.

I’m talking about things which cannot be answered by human reasoning.

Things like understanding why a friend’s baby died suddenly in her crib.

Why some people make poor decisions and ruin their lives—and others don’t.

Even things like what Heaven will be like or how is it that people fall in love?

For now, those questions will have to wait to be perfectly understood.

Someday, though, I will know fully.


For now we see indistinctly, as in a mirror, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I will know fully, as I am fully known.

—1 Corinthians 13:12
