Colors change but God doesn't

Thursday night, I’m on Facebook and I keep seeing a reference to “the dress.” I keep reading posts concerning what color this particular dress is and how cool it is that people can’t agree on it. Eventually, my curiosity gets the best of me and I hunt down a picture of this piece of clothing so I can decide its color for myself. I see it and think, “This is obviously a white and gold dress, what’s the big deal? What a dumb thing to be arguing about,” and I go on watching the game or whatever I was doing. A few minutes later though, I’m looking online again and after seeing a picture of the dress for the tenth time in an hour, I show the picture to my wife and ask her to tell me the color of the dress she’s looking at. She answers, “White and gold,” which is the same color combination I’d seen. And then something very bizarre happens. I glance at the picture again and see a blue and black dress, instead of the white and gold one. I scroll down the page to see why I’m somehow looking at a different picture and suddenly realize that the picture is the same one, yet now I am seeing a different color pattern. I hold the picture to my wife and ask, “What color is the dress now?”
