“Have you understood all these?”One of the marks of Jesus’ dis ciples, as trained for the reign of God, is being able to comprehend the teachings of Jesus about the inbreaking of God’s reign. And this understanding is made possi ble only through Jesus. The disci ples got the meaning of his mes sage, which made them “blessed recipient of the mystery of God’s love” (Donald Senior). Having been guided to a profound un derstanding of the love of God, they got the message right.Many times we need someone, or few others, to help us under stand things. We need people to help us see things that are hidden from view and comprehension. We know people who have suf fered unfortunate, immoral and devastating lives because of the failure to get things right by see king other people’s knowledge, wisdom and experience about life and human affairs. As often been said: We stand on others’ shoulder to accomplish something. The knowledge, wisdom, experience of others are blocks by which we build our lives. And the Spirit of God puts all these together, ce mented in one piece.Genuine understanding of things has the power to raise the level of our consciousness, change our perspective, widen our horizon, create positive and lasting impact(s) in human af fairs and condition of the natu ral world.
