Where there is no prophetic vision the people cast off restraint, but blessed is he who keeps the law.
2 Peter 1:5-9
For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith with virtue, and virtue with knowledge, and knowledge with self-control, and self-control with steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness, and godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they keep you from being ineffective or unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For whoever lacks these qualities is so nearsighted that he is blind, having forgotten that he was cleansed from his former sins.
Sacrifice separates the small from the great
His vision of the future is giving his present physical discomfort meaning and purpose.
- WHAT IS VISION?
Vision is the lens that interprets the events of our life, the way we view people and our concept of God
We PERCEIVE with our EYES but we SEE with our HEARTS
If you have the wrong pretext you will misunderstand the context
- What ARE YOUR CORE VALUES
Core values are the lens or eyes of our heart
It is not the truths that we believe in our head that are our core values, but rather the ones we believe in our heart.
III. What is Farsightedness in Christianese?
If you are near-sighted, you see objects that are near, but distant objects are blurry or unclear
They look for quick fixes and easy solutions.
OBJECTS FARTHER AWAY ARE BLURRY.
Nearsightedness tends to run in families
Blurry vision when looking at distant objects
PARTIALLY CLOSE the eyelids to see clearly
Difficulty seeing while driving a vehicle, especially at NIGHT
Allow the word of God and the Spirit of God to correct your VISION
