‘Blessed are the eyes that see what you see.’

We hear Jesus rejoicing that things of wisdom have been hidden from the clever and revealed to little children. ‘Many prophets and kings wanted to see what you see and never saw it’, he says. Job says he can see clearly now, after misunderstanding God’s intentions in the past. In the psalms we read: ‘It was good for me that I had to suffer, the better to learn your judgements’.

There is a lesson in humility in these readings; a call to live a life of simplicity. There is an invitation to recognise the value of suffering to reveal a truer path, one paved with wisdom and experience. How can we turn our life experiences into wisdom lessons? What must we change to live a life of simplicity?
