Seeing Through God-Colored Glasses (2 Corinthians 4:17-18)

Are we able to see everything through the eyes of the Gospel?

So much of what we learn today is filtered through another source: the internet, newspapers, magazines, even gossip. Popular terminology include such phrases as, “Seeing the world through rose-colored glasses,” imply that we may get a biased view of the events that shape our lives. We must guard against this bias as it may present the information they way the writer or reporter wants us to see them, not how they truly are.

What if we are able to view the world as God sees it? What if we were able to see ourselves as God sees us? Can we touch this world by being grounded in the Gospel? What if we could see the world through God-colored glasses?

For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
2 Corinthians 4:17-18

If our sight was truly filtered through the lens of God’s Word, how would our lives be changed? Would we be more willing to forgive another when hurt by them? Would we be more eager to lend a helping hand to a stranger in need? Would we live every moment knowing that what we do has eternal significance rather than just a temporary change?

Seek to see the world through God-colored glasses and allow Him to show you things that you never imagined in your wildest dreams!

Love and respect the Lord; seek His will in your life.
