Are we children?

For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the LORD.
When God says that, does he really mean that he is a twenty-first century American and those musty old Hebrews were just not in touch, or does he mean it the same for us as for them?

For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.
Anyone who had talked with young children knows that they just don't think the same way that adults do. Anyone who deals with adults also realizes that they think differently than young adults do.

If God is older than two hundred years, and more than twice as smart as we are, he already is likely to think in ways that are vastly different from the ones we use.

I tend to believe that that fact hasn't changed just because we live in the twenty-first century or are Americans.

Do you know any true adults?

No. I find it interesting how many "adults" are still playground children, especially in the world of business.

Yes, but nowhere near a large minority.
