Is Love Really Blind?
I was looking at this postcard posted in the mirror just beside my bed this morning and saw this postcard with the bible verse from 1 John 4:8 - God is love. Then this logic came to me which is related to the statement: Love is blind. God is Love. Therefore, God is blind.
It make sense now?
This means every time we say love is blind, it means God is also blind which is non-sense. God sees things the and He sees everything. So as love sees more and not less. Loves is not blind, it sees with great clarity. It can see things that the normal vision can't see. Love sees the worst in us and it does not ignore it, instead love forgives.
Every time we say "love is blind" we say selfishness is blind. Just say for example, when one person is looking at himself/herself as the only beautiful person in the world is being selfish. He/she does not see other but of himself/herself. When one lose sight of everything but only himself is blindness.
Some of those who thinks "love is blind" are just people who are blinded by selfishness. They said "love is blind" because they think love fails them. They were hurt and broken-hearted. But the truth is, they are are actually not in love in the first place; they were "in lust" to gratify their personal satisfaction by using other people's weakness. And when things go wrong and they messed up, they then excuse themselves by saying "love is blind".
Love is as clear as the sun. Love is patient and kind and it does not envy and not proud.
Lets start to love with clarity and use it and not abuse.
