READ: Zechariah 4:1-14

And said unto me, What seest thou? And I said, I have looked, and behold…
Zechariah 4:2

The ability to point at important things and understand what is being pointed at is one of the processes of learning. Pointing shows what my attention is on and what I want your attention to be on. A mother is constantly trying to show things to the child. Pointing silently is giving direction, guidance and teaching.

The human child begins to point at things and to notice things that are pointed to. If your attention cannot be drawn to an important thing, how can you develop properly? Differences between human beings become more obvious when their attention cannot be drawn to the important things. A boss points out to his employees the important things that need to be done. He points out why it must be done by a certain time. And yet many employees do not get it. No matter how many hours he points to the key and critical issues, they do not seem to do what he says. Surely, these are employees who will not be promoted. This causes employees to remain in darkness.

Because of this inability to see what is being pointed at, huge differences emerge between different groups of people. Extremely poor groups of people live in a world which has extremely rich people. Yet we wonder what is making the big differences between groups of people on the same planet. Things are being pointed out and yet groups of people are unable to understand what is being pointed at. The huge differences between human beings are caused by failing to work on things that are pointed at!
