God Gave Common Sense For Dummies Like Me

I’m no scholar. In fact, I skipped out on college. But there’s one thing I do have and am truly grateful for: common sense.

Common sense is an amazing gift from God, and with this gift, I am able to come to some of the most important truths in existence:

1.) All of creation reveals the character of God.

A) Without the sun, which He made on the first day, we’d die. Not only that, but we would not have light so we’d stumble around in darkness. God is life, and He is light—literally and figuratively. He is the One who created life, and in Him we have both physical life and eternal life. He is also light (a consuming fire to be more precise). His brightness exposes our darkness, illuminating the truth of our condition and who He is. Jesus is called the Light of the World by the apostle John, and for good reason. Truth Himself came down from heaven and walked amongst us, showing us how we need to live and how it’s only possible through the One who did it perfectly, that is, sinlessly.

B) Certain animals are multiple times stronger than us, displaying such power and might that we humans simply cannot muster—no matter how much steroids we consume or weights we lift. We can’t fight a full-grown bear, or a rhino and expect to win. This shows me that God—who made these beasts—is way more powerful than I can ever hope to be.

C) The sea is so deep, we can only go so far before our bodies explode from pressure. God’s wisdom is so high above our own that these finite minds we’re trapped in while on planet earth would explode at the vastness of His knowledge. However, those in Christ have the mind of Christ, where all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are hidden—only to be revealed to those who desire to follow Him.

D) Just as there’s parts of the universe we can never have time to reach, so is Heaven impossible to reach on our own. But Jesus made the way. When we die—if we had given our life to Him beforehand—we can now enter through heaven’s gates and live in eternity with our Creator, Lord, and Savior.

These are some of the things God’s gift of common sense has blessed me with. How about you?

About BetterThanPrinceCharming

Ever since Kindergarten I've dated. From Bobby Well onward, I had over four dozen boyfriends. Fifth grade was my high year: sixteen sweethearts. I went through a few boys every year after that during middle school, and high school was where my dry season hit. Between freshman and senior year I had a consumation of nine boyfriends. I was on a hunt. I'd seen every Disney princess movie, and I was bound and determined to find my prince. Prince Charming wasn't in a far away land, he was in Miami, and I wasn't going to stop until I found him. So I thought. Villains are usually the one's who get in the way of your pursuit for happiness, not Heros, right? Well, in my case, it was both. View all posts by BetterThanPrinceCharming
