Of course he did this for his amusement but it’s interesting because there’s a good message in what he did and that is the rabbit can only be seen if there’s contrast. He could’ve used any other color for the rest of the canvass than what he used to paint the rabbit and the rabbit would’ve been seen by the viewer.
This is kind of like life. It’s certainly comfortable being around people who share our ideology but when we do this we’re on a canvass with the same color paint so nothing stands out. Same thing with a flashlight if you shine it in a room that’s already lit, it’s useless. A light only has purpose in the dark.
The bottom line is contrasting viewpoints is a necessary and sometimes irritating component to our lives if we want to make a positive difference and grow personally and professionally. This includes people who are Christians and only hang out with other believers. Jesus asked others to shine their light for others to see which means we need to step into the darkness (contrasting ideologies), in order to make a difference. It isn’t comfortable but God never promised our journey would be easy.
