As I’m looking through my windows, I realize that it’s about time for me to get outside and clean them. It’s not a chore that I look forward to doing, shoot, I don’t look forward to doing any chores! However, my view is distorted because of the grime that has built up, and as the light shines through it, there is a haze that is messing up the spectrum of colors. On top of that, the screens need to be removed before they can be cleaned! What an aggravation! If I want unobstructed scenery, cleaning is necessary. Do you have something in your life that is obstructing your sight? Maybe there are hurts from your past clouding the truth. If that’s the case, you may need to do a little window washing yourself! Take a little time to assess your view on issues or ask God to reveal to you the things that are distorting your opinion. There’s nothing like a little clarification to renew the mind!
But that is not the way you learned Christ!— assuming that you have heard about him and were taught in him, as the truth is in Jesus, to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires, and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness. Ephesians 4:20-24
