Why does God seem hard to understand sometimes?
Here’s an interesting perspective on the answer to that question from Gregory Nazianzen, the 4th-century Christian leader from Asia Minor who was so influential in helping the church describe scripture’s teaching regarding the Trinity:
As far, however, as we have attained, who measure with our little measure things hard to be understood, perhaps one reason is to prevent us from too readily throwing away the possession because it was so easily come by.
For people cling tightly to that which they acquire with labour; but that which they acquire easily they quickly throw away, because it can be easily recovered.
And so it is turned into a blessing, at least to all men who are sensible, that this blessing is not too easy.
