A series of wisdom proverbs is difficult to categorize. And yet the various layers can be seen as a series of lenses choices when at the optometrist. Each choice add its own power and correction.
Here’s “genuine love”, how clearly can you see now?
Oh, not too clear because a big hurt makes you leery of love. How about now when I add “hate evil, embrace good”?
Yes to be able to see what happened to you as evil and that you are still good does improve the vision. But things are still a bit fuzzy. How about we try focusing the first lens of genuine love with this one of “mutual affection”. How’s that? Better. Good. We seem to be on a helpful track.
Now it’s your turn. How do you connect this list to finally see well enough to come to the action piece—overcome evil with good?
