The reflection in my window
Now I knew why he kept flying into the window. So I took a piece of bright orange ribbon and taped it across the window so it would scare him away.
My window with orange ribbon
It seems to have worked so far.
It is easy to fall for illusions. When we watch a magic trick, we know even if our eyes deceive us, it’s an illusion. It’s when we don’t know something is an illusion that we get in trouble.
God tells us to watch out for the illusions of this world. He tells us in Proverbs 14: 2 - There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.
The world tries to trick you with lots of illusions.
Illusion - that money brings happiness.
Illusion – having more possessions will make you happy.
Illusion – little lies won’t hurt.
Illusion – as long as I’m nice to people, I will get to heaven.
God has warned us about the illusions of the world, but everyone has fallen for an illusion of some kind. I wonder how many times we will have to hit our heads before we recognize we are being mislead.
Dear Lord, give me wisdom to see the illusions of the world and teach me to follow you. Amen
