I wear contacts. Without them, my vision is blurry. I am nearsighted with astigmatism. Due to the move, Peter’s job change, and waiting on insurance, my last pair of lenses were getting a rather thick film on them. One or both may have had other imperfections as well, like small chips or a hole. I went to the eye doctor this week. For several years, my vision has remained fairly consistent and my eyes have the same prescription (which means I can purchase one box of lenses at a time). My astigmatism does increase every few years, and now my brand of contacts makes a higher prescription, so I don’t have to change brands. I’m wearing my new trial lenses. My vision is crystal clear. The lenses are free of haze and blemish. They are perfect, just as they perfect my vision.
Many times, things in this world cloud our vision. Sin creates a haze, distorting the Truth. Satan chips away at what is perfect, altering God’s Word ever so slightly. Unlike old contact lenses, this misleading worldview is often more comfortable for people. It fits better into their lifestyle. Like those old those lenses, eventually the murky film will cause pain and even death. Consider throwing out the tattered lenses and exchange the distorted version for the complete Truth. Your eyes will thank you and the reward is Eternal.
“The eye is the lamp of the body; so then if your eye is clear, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!” ~Matthew 6:22-23
