Peekaboo

You know how babies giggle when you play peekaboo with them? They think it’s funny because according to their understanding, that person has literally left. They haven’t developed the mental capacity to understand that just because they can’t see a face that the person is still there.

That’s silly of course because we’ve developed more complex abstract thinking. Thankfully we’ve reached the pinnacle of this type of thinking and understanding. Or have we?

What if our understanding — our complex, abstract thinking — is still vastly limited? What if, in comparison to God’s understanding of the world, we’re like infants playing peekaboo?

That’s not to make us feel down and belittled, but I find that rather encouraging. What if we don’t have to understand everything? What if God understands it all so much more that, in comparison, we still think someone has literally left if we can’t see them?
