I Know You Think You Know – 1 Corinthians 13:12

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

1 Corinthians 13:12
Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.

I have to tell you that I really like this verse. Why? Because it shows that Paul himself was saying that none of us have it all right. None of us really know as much as we’d like to think. All we really see right now is equal to a poor reflection. He then equates that to a mirror. That’s difficult for us to relate to since our mirrors today can give perfectly reflected images. However, back then, that wasn’t the case. They normally used polished brass or silver to see their reflections. Those reflections were not always that good.

And that was how Paul said they were seeing things back then when the New Testament was being written. So, how much less do we really know and understand today since we are 2000 years removed? Remember, we’re all pursuing and none of us have it all right.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, shalom!

Here's something interesting to consider:
