The devotional that I read this morning contained the following line:
What we choose to see, matters."Does that make sense? Are there things that we choose to see? Are there things that we choose to not see? I think so.
What do we need to do in order to see the world clearly? What do we need to do in order to see the world the way God does? After reading that line this morning, I wondered if sometimes God-like vision means that there are certain things that we choose to not see. I wonder if it could possibly mean selective blindness to someone's faults or sins -- ignoring and forgiving someone's actions.
Consider verse 7b in 1 Samuel 16:
The Lord does not look at things man looks at. Man looks at outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.Vision like God's -- grace-filled vision -- looks beyond the surface, past the sins, to see the heart. Perhaps the clearest vision involves some selective blindness?
