Things we miss 2022
I am thinking today, of the things we miss.
You didn’t see the advertisement, and missed out on a few bargains at your local store.
You didn’t see that programme – about your favourite musician – you missed out. You would have found it interesting. (I’m sure you will catch it again – somewhere).
You missed the bus, or was it the train?
You missed your friend, who called when you were out.
You missed the explanation about the artefact, given by the museum guide – the tour is over.
You missed the concert – sold out.
You missed the enjoyment of the Old School reunion – you were out of the country at the time.
You missed so much because of Covid.
You missed the Death Notice of an old friend – you didn’t realise they were gone.
You missed the truth. You didn’t seek – therefore you didn’t find.
You missed that final piece of the childhood jig-saw, lost and not found.
You missed the fact that God was speaking to you, and had been for quite some time.
Why do we miss things? Not paying attention or not being there seems to be the two narrowed-down reasons for missing out.
Sometimes we can’t see the wood for the trees.
Everybody misses out sometime – often we miss the obvious:
16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.
