What Does a Penguin Know?
What does a penguin know about flying? Or a rabbit know about climbing trees? What does a turtle know about being homeless? Or a blue whale about a mountain breeze?
Maybe you don't, but I always want to argue that I understand another person's situation. Perhaps it would be better to admit that, often by the grace of God, I haven't had those experiences and instead stick to what I do know. I may not fully appreciate their life circumstances, but I know my Savior has been faithful through my life and all of human history. I may not be able to feel the intensity of their sorrow, joy, or confusion, but I know Jesus does. And I may not have the right words or actions or attitude or skills to decrease their suffering, but I know my God loves and laid down His life to prove it. That I do know.
