Clear the View

©Millie McNabb

Yesterday evening was cool, and my daughter told me that she was having difficulty getting the windshield cleared on her drive home. She tried various buttons, switches, and knobs to get some combination of wipers and heating that would clear the view.

When she got home and got out of the car, her view was still clouded. It was her contacts, not the windshield that needed cleaning.

We humans tend to view life that way. If there’s any fuzzy vision, we seldom look at ourselves first, but rather shift the blame elsewhere. Parents can train their children to think about their responsibility in confusing situations by asking questions like Christ did. Jesus asked, "Why do you look at the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own eye?” (Matthew 7:3)

Have you had times when you were the cloud in your vision?

God bless….
