Christ-like character

I've heard the exited reports of friends who have had their vision restored by cataract surgery, but, when I personally experienced this amazing perfection of vision, their stories became reality!  In the past two weeks I have had the lenses in both of my eyes replaced and I am still being struck by the beauty I'm seeing.  My sight in the left eye went from 20/200 to 20/20.   In fact now my husband's eyes have caught my attention several times because they are sooo BLUE. 

This makes me think of the blindness we can so easily suffer spiritually.  I would never have guessed that I was legally blind in my left eye; but, when it was restored to perfect vision then I knew exactly what the eye doctor had been talking about.  To not see spiritually is surely very similar.  The beauty of life, purpose, and eternity become clear with believing what God says in His word.  The more the Bible comes alive to us, the more we SEE. Check out this verse about vision.  2Peter 1:9"For whoever lacks these qualities is so nearsighted that he is blind, having forgotten that he was cleansed from his former sins."  I hope it makes you curious about the previous verses that name Christ-like character.   

Although I am thrilled to have wonderful vision,  I never want to lose SIGHT of the fact that seeing spiritual life clearly is the best of all because it is not only for now, but, also for eternity.
