June 6th The D. L. Moody Year Book

 

Now we see through a glass darkly; but then face to face.—1 Corinthians 13:12.

THE word Paul used, properly translated, is “mirror.” Now, we see God, as it were, in a mirror, but then, face to face.

Suppose we knew nothing of the sun except what we saw of its light reflected from the moon? Would we not wonder about its immense distance, about its dazzling splendor, about its life-giving power? But all that we see, the sun, the moon, the stars, the ocean, the earth, the flowers, and above all, man, are a grand mirror in which the perfection of God is imperfectly reflected.[1]
