Duck or rabbit?
Duck or rabbit? What do you see? Or can you see both? Sometimes there are simply two different ways of looking at the same thing. It probably doesn’t matter that, in the case of this image, both can be seen as correct interpretations. So it is with many things in life: we can agree to differ and no harm is done. Ideally we can learn to see both points of view! However, we can take this too far in life and assume that nothing is really definite; that everything is open to our own personal interpretation and that there is more than one truth about everything.

All God’s Words Prove True
People say history repeats itself. And there is no better example of that than the wars that have afflicted God’s people over many centuries. 722 BC: the power of the Assyrian empire; 587 BC: the mighty Babylonians; AD 70 and AD 132: the unstoppable Roman legions. God allowed them all to overthrow His people’s cities and take the inhabitants into captivity when they dismissed Him from their lives. Yet God’s people continually failed to learn the lesson, and it was never long after each reestablishment that they again turned from Him and the cycle repeated.
