During the middle ages (okay, okay, during
our middle ages), we went to our optometrist
for an eye check-up. (Why do we say eye check-up?
Don't we usually have both of them checked? Up?
Anyway, the good doctor informed us that
we had presbyopia, and should start wearing
He then proceeded to inform us that presbyopia
means we can see objects faraway but not up

Spiritually speaking, it might easily be asked: How is
our vision this day? Do we see our situations and our
lives with our spiritual eyes. Do we view those around
us in any type of spiritual context?
If we are having difficulty with our spiritual visual
acuity, may we be wise enough to contact the
Great Physician this next week. He can help us
get our vision back.
After all, if there is no vision (or even very poor
vision), people often perish. (See Proverbs 29:18)
