74 Tangled

To many people, this tangled mess of communication lines would be considered ugly and unattractive. These phone cables in Thailand remind me of China when I first moved there several years ago. Lines would be replaced and added over, around, and through existing lines. No one would bother to remove any of the old lines, so they would just continue to cluster above the sidewalk.

But, I see beyond the tangled mess. I see a beautiful, green, warm, sunny country with rich history, amazing experiences, delicious food, friendly people, and a relaxing atmosphere.

I came here somewhat reluctantly due to other uncontrollable events in the world, but I’m so glad that I did.

In John chapter 7, Jesus reprimands some hypocritical Jewish leaders and says, “Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment.”

I’m going to try to start seeing past appearances. When I meet people, I’m going to look past the tangled messes. I’m going to get over the reluctance to engage. And I’m going to look for the beauty beyond the mess.



纠结

对许多人来说,这种杂乱无章的通讯线路会被认为是丑陋和没有吸引力的。泰国的这些电话线让我想起了几年前刚搬到那里时的中国。线路将被替换和添加到现有线路上、周围和穿过现有线路。没有人会费心去移除任何旧的线路,所以它们会继续聚集在人行道上方。

但是,我看到的不仅仅是混乱。我看到一个美丽、绿色、温暖、阳光明媚的国家,有着丰富的历史、令人惊叹的经历、美味的食物、友好的人民和令人放松的气氛。

由于世界上其他无法控制的事件,我有些不情愿地来到这里,但我很高兴我做到了。

在约翰福音第七章,耶稣斥责一些伪善的犹太领袖说:“不要以貌取人,要以正确的判断来判断。”

我要试着去看看过去的样子。当我遇到人的时候,我会从混乱中寻找过去。我要克服不愿参与的心理。我要寻找混乱之外的美。
