"Be clean, you who bear the vessels of the Lord.” Isaiah 52:11 NKJV
Spiritually speaking, Are the glasses you're looking through clean?
When you look through the lens of jealousy and envy, you become resentful of the blessings of others. When you look through the lens of judgmentalism, you speak and act without mercy and grace. When you look through the lens of fear and unbelief, you limit God and forfeit what He can do for you. When you look through the lens of selfishness, you put yourself first and your loved ones suffer. When you look through the lens of negativity and cynicism, people begin to avoid you because you're not enjoyable to be around.
"Be clean, you who bear the vessels of the Lord." Just as your glasses need to be wiped clean from the contamination around you, so do your heart and mind.
How does this happen? Jesus said, "Now ye are clean through the word which I have spoken unto you" (Jn 15:3). Through prayer and daily Bible reading, your perspective on life is kept right.
Let's keep our spiritual lenses clean, in Jesus Name.
