Seeing is Believing, or is it?
Matthew 13:13 (New American Standard Bible)
13"Therefore I speak to them in parables; because while seeing they do not see, and while hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand.
Sometimes our eyes fool us, like in these pictures. We think we see someone we know and wave only to find out we don't know them at all. Our spiritual sight is the same way. God helps us to see things in a different way. Someone might see a homeless person and think, why don't they get a job they are a drain on society. Someone else might see the same person and think, maybe they need a helping hand they are down on their luck right now, but they are still a child of God. It depends on our perspective. God helps us to see beyond the surface.he looks so much deeper. Today ask God to let you see people and situations through His eyes not yours.
1 Samuel 16:7 (New American Standard Bible)
7But the LORD said to Samuel, "Do not look at his appearance or at the height of his stature, because I have rejected him; for God sees not as man sees, for man looks at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart."
