Approximately 164 million Americans wear prescription eyeglasses or contact lenses for a variety of ailments. Some need them continuously, while others only need them for reading, or perhaps driving - but in each circumstance, the individualized prescription provides an adjustment to the image seen, and its position and focus on the retina of the wearer. For most people, their vision challenges fall into one of three categories, myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism. This year, and the challenges which we have faced have served in many ways as a spiritual eye exam. It has provided us with the opportunity to recognize places where our vision is distorted, or we are not seeing how God has intended us to see. Corrective lenses, when properly applied don't correct WHAT you see... the image remains the same... instead, they correct HOW you see it. They adjust the position of the image, or the focus of the image on the retina. Are we spiritually nearsighted, unable to focus in fully on the big picture for sake of what is happening right in front of us? Are we far-sighted, where the big picture is clear, but we cannot see that which is close to us? Or are we experiencing a spiritual astigmatism, a completely distorted view not based on the Word of God? How can we correct these spiritual issues, and what are the corrective lenses which God has provided us?
