Topic: Following Jesus
Obey my commands so that you may live. Follow my teachings just as you protect the pupil of your eye. Proverbs 7:2 GW
Seeing brings light and light brings knowledge. Instinctively we protect our eyes from harm. We recognize how dark and difficult our lives, our world, would be without sight. We'll do about anything to preserve our sight.
God says we should be as proactive in following His principles as we are in protecting our sight. Why? Because while our eyes provide sight in the physical world, God's principles provide sight in the spiritual world, that eternal world that makes the difference between true sight and blindness.
As I protect my physical sight, I want to protect my spiritual sight by knowing Christ (through prayer and the Word) and following Him.
