Each day, I reflect upon a word or a phrase from the readings of the day. I encourage you to do the same and perhaps incorporate that word or phrase into your daily prayer.
May the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ enlighten the eyes of our hearts, that we may know what is the hope that
belongs to our call. (Ephesians 1:17-18)
EYES OF OUR HEARTS: For most of Jesus’ time on earth, very few people were able to truly know him, despite hearing Jesus teach and seeing Him perform miracles. The Christ was right in front of them, and they missed Him.
Some things never change. Many of us spend our lives with tunnel vision, focused only on what we want or what we need. We miss what is most important. We miss Christ among us.
I suggest that if we want to see Christ, we look at life through the eyes of our hearts.
