The Eye of the Eye
′′ The Lord God makes every tree grow out of the earth, to please the eyes of men, and to be food. And in the midst of the garden is the tree of life, and the tree of knowledge of good and evil.” (Genesis 9, New Bible)
The German Bauhos Academy of Fine Arts and Design is a world-renowned school, with many elites coming out of this school every year. The motto of the Department of Commodity Design is: ′′ Our works must meet the requirements of both aesthetic and practical design, and use them to match the structure of the human body “. ′′ Beauty design, attempts to match the style of God’s creation :” It pleases the eyes of man, and it is food “.
Imagine a home item (not an ornament) that is only beautiful but of no practical value, how can you retain the world and become a common thing? On the contrary, one thing only meets the practical requirements without regard to the convenience of the home, that is, the combination of the user’s hand-shaped or physical characteristics – such as the grip of a spoon handle, the water cup Latitude, chair back and cushion shape, etc. Do not pay attention to the aesthetic feeling of the style, will soon be eliminated. As far as the fruit of the Lord alone is concerned, they are not only beautiful in color, they are moist and flowing lines, but more mouthwatering.
The ′′ Tree of Life ′′ and the ′′ Tree of Knowing Good and Evil ′′ are true trees, but contain a clear symbolic meaning. When one looks at the tree of life, he is reminded that the Lord is the living Lord, the source of life, and nothing is beautiful and nothing is satisfying. Seeing the ′′ tree of knowledge of good and evil ′′ makes one think of the Lord’s sovereignty full of knowledge and wisdom, ′′ God sees all things good ′′ (Gen. 31), expressing the love of the Lord and cherish , and all things created by Guan, are rejoicing in his creation; and even more demonstrating that he has deep wisdom, and that he has judged such a ′′ layout / composition ′′ for good, and that the Lord self-determination of what is ′′ good ′′ or ′′ Not good “,” ′′ beautiful ′′ or ′′ not beautiful “.
The ′′ pleasing eye ′′ is originally a gift from the Lord, which gives people an aesthetic reaction, while the ′′ good ′′ points to him, making him the Lord, the focus of life; yet man is only left in ′′ pleasing eyes ′′ The thing, thought that ′′ pleasing ′′ is by the ego, and the result leads to the path of worship.
Lord! Help me to know that He is the source of good, and glorify Him in my own post. In the name of the Lord Christ, Amen.
