There was a gentle thump on the patio window. A robin had flown into the glass. It wandered around on the patio in a daze for a while, but eventually recovered and flew away. Windows sometimes reflect a bird’s natural habitat, resulting in injury or death. We, too, can be fooled by appearances and lured into bad habits, not seeing what is really there. Although often humorously laughed at as a mythical character, Satan is no joke. Jesus frequently affirmed his existence. Paul was inspired to write of Satan’s work on unsuspecting victims- “whose minds the god of this age (Satan) has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel should shine on them.” When we smile at the thought of Satan being a real person, we are doing exactly what he wants us to do. He has blinded our minds.
