Blurry Screen ... Or the Need for Love

Written by Luz Leigh - 27 January 2008

One night I was on line. OK, you say, "That is news?" On that particular night someone mentioned that when she took her glasses off the screen became blurry. This is understandable since most of us wear our eyeglasses to improve our vision. I have worn glasses for most of my adult life. First, just for reading or close work. Later I progressed to fulltime; then to bifocals and later to progressive lens. Without my glasses what I see is blurry, so, guess what? I keep them on most of the time.

When the person made the remark about the words on the screen becoming blurry when she removed her glasses, it reminded me of a scripture verse in Corinthians. Paul was telling the Corinthians about spiritual gifts and Christian love. In 1 Corinthians 13:12 Paul penned these words:

For now we see through a glass, darkly, but then face to face; now I know in part; but then shall I know even as I am known. KJV

Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. NIV

Now we see things imperfectly as in a poor mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity. All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God knows me now. NLT

For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I have been known before. NASB

This verse is toward the end of the chapter, known to many as the "love chapter." Paul was emphasizing that although we might be empowered by the Holy Spirit to have many spiritual gifts, such as speaking in tongues, the gift of prophecy, the gift of giving, or Faith, if we have not love in our hearts, it counts for nothing. To do the will of the Father, we need to be looking at the picture clearly, not through a dim mirror ... as in the case of the lady who removed her eyeglasses, looking at a blurry screen.

So I guess what I am trying to say is this: Keep your "eyeglasses of love" on so you will see things clearly, as the Father sees us. To me verses 9 - 12 refer to the second coming of Christ ... my thoughts only. No one told me this.
