I was reminded today just how incredibly, wonderfully made we are. God’s designs on every part of our makeup is just awesome. I was working on some print work for work and frankly, had to make a quick fix on something at the pixel level. Yes, I know I shouldn’t be working in pixels on print work… but that is just the way it is at this point.
Anyway, I had to move a logo that was overlapping another element. I was working off a file that didn’t have the layers that I needed to simply bump the logo over, and I figured I could cut it real close and slide it over. Surely it would be OK. Right?
Well when I zoomed out, it is amazing how the eye was instantly drawn to the “fix.”. Granted, I knew where I had made the edits, but I don’t think that is the case. My brain working was easily able to interpret what my eye was seeing and it knew that something wasn’t right.
I zoom way in to the pixel level and am not able to see the apparent problem. Again, since I am trying to quickly do this project, I start some surgery on the logo around the edges… zoom back out. It is better, but still not perfect. I do this back and forth a few times before I am satisfied. I can still see the faint edge that doesn’t look right, but I am willing to live with it at this point.
God gave us the ability to perceive and sense that things are not right. This is even more magnified when you consider the spiritual level.
I believe that God gave everyone the make up that allows them to know right and wrong. Sure, the senses can keep us from getting into real trouble… but the conscience is what really does the heavy lifting. Sometimes it screams out at us that something is wrong, but other times it is subtle. Our conscience lets us know that there is a hint of something wrong with the picture or situation.
And that is why when some senseless tragedy happens, we wonder what was going through the mind of the individual who carried out that tragedy. Don’t they have a conscience? Well, yes they do. I think that is where the heart and conscience are so closely linked. Eventually, you are going to become heart becomes hardened or your conscience becomes dulled because you ignore the message that it is trying to tell you.
No comments needed… Just food for thought. Hope everyone is having a great day.
