Dwelling on Isaiah 55:9
I've been dwelling on Isaiah 55:9 recently. "As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts."
I've always thought of the verse as a put down to humans, but I think I was wrong. Humans are capable of amazing things. Yet, our knowledge is limited to our worldview in our culture, in our time period, on our planet (Think about for a second). This renders our capacity very limited, because we are strapped into the concept of time, cultural worldview, social economic status, geographical location of our birth- and all of these thoughts are limited to a single planet out of an entire galaxy.
