Vision is the ability to see, sight or eyesight. So how is your vision? It is said, “No one is so blind as he who will not see!” Take Blind Bartimaeus in Mark 10:46-52. He was blind with his natural eyes, but had perfect 20/20 vision spiritually.

The Bible talks about how many people surrounded Jesus with eyes that could see naturally, but were completely blind spiritually. Jesus said, “Can the blind lead another? Won’t they both fall into a ditch?” This word blind means having a cloudy perspective or having a clouded vision or spiritual blindness. Blind Bartimaeus had his natural eyes healed by seeing Jesus with his spiritual eyes first. He saw Jesus as his answer, as his Savior, and he sought first the Kingdom of God and all his righteousness, and then all these things were added to him.

So how is your vision? Do you have 20/20 vision for the things of the world? Or do you have 20/20 vision for the things of God? In a crowd, would you see Jesus as Blind Bartimaeus did? Or would you just walk by and be a spectator as the crowd was, having eyes to see, but yet not seeing and having ears to hear, but yet not hearing?

Seek after the things above, not the things of the earth. Look to the things that are not seen, instead of the things that are seen with the natural eyes. Get a heavenly perspective by setting your sights on the realities of heaven where Christ sits in the place of honor at God’s right hand!
