What You See & Hear

Posted on

What you see is not what you hear
What you hear is not what you see

Open your eyes widely
Open your ears clearly
Wear your spectacle
Remove the speck covering your eyes
Dig out the dirt in your earlobe
Let your ear as long as the rabbit
Use both of them
To observe correctly
To listen attentively.

Please do REMEMBER
To observe correctly
To listen attentively.

As I was cycling home from buying groceries, “What you see is not what you hear. What you hear is not what you see.” has been speaking to my mind. Subsequently, I remembered of my situation before. A friend who is guy ever met me at the eateries near my church. Afterward, he seek my permission to follow me in order to know which church building I go for worship then he left as I entered the church building.

Upon reaching home after the completion of Bible class on a certain topic, suddenly my sister questioned worriedly where I went. I answered I went to church for class. Abruptly, she repeated what her friend reported, “I saw your sister walk with a guy to an apartment.” Thank God for His Holy Spirit to give me calmness and replied gently that the apartment was just one out of other apartments I need to pass by from the eateries in order to reach my destination, which is the church building. In my heart, I thank the Lord for the pastor to give a certificate of attendance upon the completion of the Bible class with their contacts. Confidently, I took out the certificate from my school bag. She believed me. And this event has been a laughable matter due my sister’s friend basing his deduction according to what he saw. It will be good if he probed to listen the conversations and followed out of concern, rather than see superficially and report it.

Sometimes hearing people say only without observing may make a mistake also. The animation “Death Note” showed the corrupted officer named Light questioning his suspected underground follower. Light used stackable notes to tell her what to do and telling lies as his other colleagues were listening to his conversations. This what the police officers do to collect evidence. It is not a wise decision either due the incomprehensible of human hearts tempted to go astray (Jeremiah 17:9).
