2 Corinthians 5:7

"(For we walk by faith, not by sight:)"
2 Corinthians 5:7

Today this verse makes me think of the difference between what we believe and what we see. It's sometimes hard to resolve. God tells us that someday we'll be resurrected and have perfect bodies, but we experience age and sickness and disease, and it is hard to see or feel. God tells us that we can build a perfect society, with no inequality, and where the poor don't suffer... but we see a very imperfect society, where the poor do suffer, and where people desire many types of inequality. God tells us that we can be amazing people... like him, and yet we look at ourselves and see the terrible gulf between who we want to be and who we are. It's hard to see so much of what we believe sometimes... but it is still true. Today, let's work on Faith. On walking where we believe we can, rather than only where we can see. Let's step out into God's perspective and stretch our minds to see the miraculous possibilities of reaching beyond our shortsightedness. Let's be more than we think we can.
