Both Sides

A story of Cordell Hull, the great Secretary of State under Franklin Roosevelt: He was riding in a train one day, with a companion, through the New England states. Observing a flock of sheep feeding on a hillside his companion idly remarked, “Those sheep have recently been sheared.” Cordell Hull stared at them a moment and said, “Well, sheared on this side anyway!” Thomas was that kind of a man. He would go no further than what he understood.

Before the church had the full canon of Scripture, they were in the dark about many things. However, when the N.T was completed, everything necessary was made clear. They could see both sides now.

1 Corinthians 13:12

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

Both sides are revealed to the one who takes the time to examine what the Word of God has to say. God has even given us the Holy Spirit to help out in that endeavor.

Give it some thought.
