Man was created with two eyes, so that with one he may see God's greatness, and with the other his own lowliness. -Samuel Y. Agnon
I have heard of thee by the hearing of the ear: but now mine eye seeth thee. Job 42:5
The older I get the more I am realizing I need glasses! When I turned forty-six I dropped by the old Walmart and picked up a pair of the cheap reading glasses. I have been putting off going to get the old eyes checked because I know what the Docs gonna say—time for some real specks old boy! Time to get things into focus!
I believe this relates to us and our Saviour as well. During this life we get out of focus with Him because of the sin in our lives. We get out of focus while lusting after material wealth of others. We get out of focus looking at the flesh of others. We get out of focus by looking at the successes of others. Mean while He is trying to get our attention to look back at Him; to focus on His grace and mercy, to zoom in on His goodness, to see Him high and lifted up! When is the last time you’ve been by The Great Physician to get a check up? Maybe this Wednesday would be a good day!
