Just a random thought.
I was walking past a sign today, I don’t remember what the whole sign was about, but it contained the phrase “love makes you blind”.
It’s a weird concept. I know what it means, but isn’t it kind of antithetical to what we would want to believe?
We say love (in it’s purest form) is the highest of virtues, biblically, it’s one of our main goals, God uses “love” to describe himself, Paul waxes lyrical about it, and almost every page of the scriptures are saturated in it. Songs have been written from the beginning of time about it.
Surely love does the opposite of blinding. It’s only in love that we are actually able to see. Without love, we are blind.
If what we call “Love” causes us to no longer see (flaws, problems, sins, etc), then is it really love? Or infatuation, idolatry?
