It was not till I learned that the mask were made of mesh allowing to horses to still see and it actually protects the horses’ eyes from disease causing flies. The mask actually is preventing the horses from getting blind!
Many non-Christian or even sometimes us, Christians often think that God puts all the rules and teachings in the Bible as a mask so that we will miss all the fun in life. Many thinks living a Christian life is sad because we don’t get to enjoy life to the fullest. Non-Christians on the other hands, seize the day; they live in such desirable pleasures and they seem more interesting as a person than some boring Christian person
Now, what I did not know about the mask, they don’t know about the Bible. The Bible does not keep us from experiencing and seeing all that is good; it is protecting us from being infected by lies that may cause spiritual blindness. The Bible does not keep Christians from enjoying life; it is teaching us how to truly enjoy our God given life and it gives us wisdom to discern lies from the truth.
Give me understanding, so that I may keep your law and obey it with all my heart.
