The Unseen

In 2 Cor 4:16-18, Paul says we must fix our eyes on the unseen.  What a struggle there can be with the natural or materialistic world.  One of the great mediums that have shape our modern world has been television.  It has been reported by the time a person has turned 65, they would have watched 9 years of television.  It has had a powerful affect on our outlooks on life.  Every day the philosophy of the world is being spewed out through this medium.  The things that would have shocked the Christian 30 years ago now have little effect on them.  Nowadays unfortunately it is getting harder and harder to tell the difference between a Christian and non christian.  Why is that?  We are putting more and more emphasis on tha which is seen than that which is unseen.  It is easier to keep your eyes on Jesus when you have nothing.  When you have all kinds of things in your life demanding your time and attention it is much more difficult to keep your eyes on Jesus.   One of the most blessed times for myself and my family was when I was un-employed.  God was our source and we saw Him marvelously supply our every need.  I am not saying we should not have the good things of life but we should not have our eyes on them but Jesus.  Your promises today are:  Psalm 5:12, 34:7, 97:10, 121:8, Prov 2:8, 30:5, Isaiah 59:19, John 8:32, Rom 8:37 and 2 Thess 3:3.  Your Insightful Sayings are:  A preson may be a success in the work place but a dismal failure at home.  Never measure success in what you have but in what you give away.
