Asymmetrical 19 Dec 2018
Speaks about two unequal parts. With symmetry, the parts are equal when mirrored
When two parts have too much difference there is an unbalance.
The human eye likes symmetry. In relationships, too much asymmetry causes difficulties.
Asymmetrical means that two parts are unequal.
There are quite some: Parent vs Child, Master vs Slave, God vs Human
In those cases, the relationship is not intended to be equal. But even here over a longer time with maturing relationship, the differences should become smaller.
Difficulties with asymmetric relationships
It easily can happen that:
- one of the parties does not feel understood.
- one of the parties feels unworthy
- one of the parties frustrates the other one.
We should grow in God's likeness
The children of God should imitate God, otherwise they will never come in a balanced relationship with God.
