It is easy to become distracted by the outer appearances of the world around us. It is easy to see measure ourselves by the superficial. It is hard to see through it all how well the Father knows us and loves us. If we take time to shut our eyes and look with godly vision, we can see the true light and walk by it. May the Father bless us all to look upon the world with godly eyes.
