Question of the day: Why does it take 3 angels to complete this picture?
Isaiah 6:3 "One called out to another, and said: 'Holy, holy, holy, is Adonai-Tzva'ot! The whole earth is full of His glory.'"
Answer: How holy is God? So holy that the perspective of any one angel could never adequately describe His holiness. In fact, the smallest number would be 3, because it would take 3 to complete a circle.
This relates to why God placed us together in His body. Remember, we really do need each other? Our perspective is not "all knowing." Only the Lord, Himself, is all knowing.
While writing on the perfection of love, Paul write to the Corinthians ...
1 Corinthians 13:9-10 "For we know in part and we prophesy in part; but when that which is perfect has come, then that which is partial will pass away."
Give thanks that we can add our perspective to each other to achieve a more complete view of the goodness of God. "God is good" is a very complex sentence. We really doneed each other just to understand that simple truth.
