One of benefits of having two eyes facing forward (unlike most birds and fish) is that we have depth perception. The combined views of each eye help us to determine how far away things are as well as enabling us to more easily catch a ball coming at us. But, as the above picture reminds us, we need to have our eyes open in order for it to work.
Perception can also relate to our understanding. The deeper our understanding, the more wise our actions will be. And if we metaphorically have our "eyes closed", we won't be able to fully understand people or situation. I think we all strive to have depth to our perception.
This Sunday, January 12th, we'll continue with our look at how to live as a Jesus-follower in a world that is increasingly post-Christian in it's world view and behavior. God wants us to have 20/20 Vision in which we see with His eyes and love with His heart. This week we'll be looking at Daniel chapter 2. I encourage you to take some time to read it and reflect on wisdom that comes from God. I hope to see you this Sunday.
