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 finally went to the eye doctor this week. Now, 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 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.
