I wanted to share another example, one about my own health crisis rather than one I merely witnessed.
God gave me a love of the truth, and I'm grateful. But loving truth is no substitute for faith, and only IN faith does it become a love of the One Who IS Truth.
When we block the flow of God’s love into our hearts, we have a love deficit and a big problem. Is this deficit behind the character issues that plague us?

Most of my questions of God are "Why?" Like, “Why did You allow this suffering?” My questions reveal my values: comfort and safety. But what does God value?
Much of the past year has seen me grappling with my life in a way that seemed long overdue. In particular, I asked myself the question, “What am I doing?”
There's always hidden parts of reality which we have to wait for God to reveal. God longs to show us great & mighty things, which we know not.

Speaking true-isms isn’t actually speaking the Truth. Statements like: “I am stupid!” “I can’t do anything right!” I’m so ugly!” These are variable realities only my perception but not Truth.
Do we ever think God is wasteful, extravagant, or excessive? If the answer is yes, then we might be judging things with human eyes!
