Not Much to See Here!

Rev Dirk Willner

Living Grace Church

That’s a line from the movies stuck in my head and then we see the police move the curious onlookers away from the scene. ‘Not much to see here.’ Why this tactic? Is it considered best for the public interest that they don’t know, or is it thought that the crowd might draw the wrong conclusion?

The detectives need to be called in to detect, to discover the truth, and gather the supporting evidence. So, is that why we have the saying ‘appearances can be deceiving?’ You might be interested to know that this saying goes back to 1 Samuel 16:7 (NIV) which says, “The Lord does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” Maybe with all that is going on, taking a deeper look is worth it. Getting to the heart of the matter, as this biblical reference suggests, is going beyond surface appearances. My wife tells my kids when they cannot find something, ‘have a Mummy look.’ Well, perhaps we should pause to look at our situation with the eyes of the Lord to discover the heart of the matter.
