Permanent Smudge

I accidentally wore my glasses into the sauna a while back, and it was so hot, the transparent protectant layer started to melt. I didn’t realize this and touched them. When I got out of the sauna, there was a huge smudge on my glasses. I tried and tried to get the smear out, but I couldn’t. It was permanent, and my glasses weren’t under warranty, so I had to save for them. In the meantime, I started to wear an old pair of glasses or contacts. I had headaches all the time, and I had lost the ability to see 20/20. The book of Proverbs in the Bible is full of short statements that are packed with wisdom. Reading through Proverbs would benefit every person, whether you believe in the Bible or not. Reading and obeying the Proverbs would bring back what used to be known as common sense. The Proverbs also help us discern right from wrong and wisdom from foolishness. I think we would all agree that common sense and discernment are missing from many people today! How is your vision blurred regarding common sense? What area of life are you trying to discern what is best but can’t seem to figure out? Perhaps you’ve lost sight of the Word of God…

Proverbs 3:21-22a: “My child, don’t lose sight of common sense and discernment. Hang on to them, for they will refresh your soul.”
