Seeing Clearly

I can remember back in 1984 as I was preparing to go to college. I’m not sure if it was a requirement to get into college, or what, but my parents took me to have an eye test, and it was obvious I needed glasses. The day my glasses arrived, I put them on, and I was blown away. I could read street signs from a distance! I could see the individual leaves on trees, and all the sudden everything wasn’t blurry!!! I finally was seeing the world the way it was meant to be seen! And of course, I’ve worn glasses ever since.

But even so, every couple of years, I need a new prescription for my glasses. Things start to go blurry. However, they often go blurry so slowly that I don’t even realize it until I put on a pair of glasses that is set to the right prescription.

That’s the way it is with God and His Word. We MUST look at the world around us THROUGH His Word. We can never seen the world in the correct light, nor can we correctly find our way, until we are focused on Him!

And we must constantly be checking our focus. We slowly start focusing on the wrong things, and we slowly start allowing our vision to dim. Sadly that’s just part of life. The REALLY sad thing is when we refuse to acknowledge that our vision needs an update! We have to get our lives refocused with the RIGHT prescription! The truths found only in Holy Scripture!
