Spiritual Eyes

Spiritual Eyes

In the deepest parts of the ocean there is a sea creature called the colossal squid which
can grow up to 45 feet long! This squid has eyes the size of watermelons! God gave the squid
large eyes so it can be on the lookout for predators. Having good eyesight is important for a
squid, but it’s also important for us in our spiritual lives.

We have our regular eyes, but we also have something called “spiritual eyes.” When we
see with spiritual eyes it means that we look at the world the way God looks at it. Instead of
judging someone for how they look, we can try to look at their heart and appreciate them for
their kindness. Or, instead of looking down on someone who is homeless, we can look at them
as a child of God and try to give them some help. What are some ways that you could see with
spiritual eyes?

Dear God, please give me spiritual eyes  so I can see people the way you see them.

For the Lord sees not as man sees: man looks on the outward appearance. But the Lord looks on the heart. 1 Samuel 16:7
