What you see is a privilege. Our eyes are a prize possession, phycologists say the shape of one’s eyes can reveal more about one’s personality. While to some people, eyes look like nothing more than colorful balls that allow them to see the world, but to others, eyes truly reflect one’s soul. No wonder it is said the eyes are the window of the soul. However, the shape of the actual eyeball will affect vision. It is possible for the eyeballs to be either shortened or elongated. An elongated eyeball is also referred to as myopia or nearsightedness. With this condition, people have difficulty seeing objects that are far away.

Jesus too speaks about the eye in Luke 6:41 & 42 (GNB) “Why do you look at the speck in your brother’s eye, but pay no attention to the log in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, ‘Please, brother, let me take that speck out of your eye,’ yet cannot even see the log in your own eye? You hypocrite! First take the log out of your own eye, and then you will be able to see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.

Often one is inclined to see the small irritants in another person’s ways, and yet one’s own shortcomings are easily forgotten. Perfection should rather come from within, whilst not projecting it upon those around one as an obsession.

Dear Father, make me do introspection before I irritate others with my wants. Make me perfect in your sight through Jesus my saviour and make me strive with all those around me to fix rather than criticize, to smile rather than being irritated and to excuse what is not that important. Make me patient and loving, in Jesus name, Amen.
