Genesis 33:18-34:31; Psalms 4:1-6:10; Matthew 19:1-15

The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. Matthew 6:22

After receiving my new glasses, I was disappointed that my vision was still blurry. I went back to my optometrist and he assured me the prescription was correct, but that it was time to get the wrinkle at the back of my eye surgically corrected. Likewise, our spiritual vision can become distorted—by cultural influences, our own prejudices, fear, bitterness and pride. Daily, we need our eyes opened and cleansed by reading God’s Word, and our hearts illuminated to understand by the Holy Spirit. Meditate on Him today! —Glenda Paquette

Silently now I wait for Thee, ready my God, Thy will to see,
Open my eyes, illuminate me, Spirit divine. —Clara H. Scott
