This is our B moment. Our moment to be still…to be fed by the Word of God…to be grateful.
Scripture reference: Colossians 3:2 (NIV)
Today I am asking a question: Do you have a case of spiritual myopia?
First, let’s agree on the term myopia, which simply means improper focus. It means that when we’re trying to focus on an object, it becomes blurred and fuzzy. In other words, the eye is incapable of bringing light to an object and to bring that object into sharp focus.
In the spiritual realm, it means that we can clearly see all of our problems. We can see all of the obstacles in our path, but we lose sight of our provision and who our provider is. This is precisely what happened with the disciples when it came to feeding the five thousand.
One evening, Christ was teaching a large crowd when the disciples suggested they send the people back home to get food as it was getting late. Christ, however, said that there was no need for that. He had five loaves of bread and two fish, so he planned to multiply them so that everyone could stay put and eat there.
In their defense, the disciples were not aware that Christ was going to do that. Yet here’s the key. Shortly after that, there was an opportunity to feed four thousand. What happened? The disciples came came down with a case of spiritual myopia. They focused on the problem—the lack of food—and they didn’t focus on the provider who was right there among them.
If you have spiritual myopia, leave it behind by focusing on these words: “Set your mind on things above, not on earthly things.” Colossians 3:2 (NIV)
