STOP AND THINK – You can observe a lot by watching. (Yogi Berra, professional baseball player and manager)
Berra was well known for his malapropisms. It is not only humorous, but what he said here is insightful. Do we really see what we’re looking at? The same can be true of what we hear. Sometimes we hear someone speak, but we’re not really listening, so we can’t profit from it. This is true, also, about observing and seeing. So, be sure to see what you’re seeing.
This is why I [Jesus] speak to them in parables: “Though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand (Matthew 13:13).
