"And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek Him." Hebrews 11:6

A little girl was with her father hiking in the mountains. It was a crystal clear sunny day with a bright blue sky. When they reached a clearing high on a ridge they stopped to take in the panoramic view. Both of them stood speechless for several minutes just overcome by the beauty surrounding them. The little girl broke the silence as she exclaimed, "Daddy! I can see farther than I can see!"

I am glad I can see beyond what my human eyes can behold.

When you think about it, everything that matters the most will never be seen by the human eye!

You will never lay eyes on your soul but your soul is the part of you which will last forever. What is more important than that?

You will never see God with your eyes. According to the Old Testament, if you did happen to gaze on with your human eyes you would die.

And, you will never see heaven with your human eyes. No one ever has and no one will.

Allow this thought to sink in for a little while. All of those "things" we work so hard to attain, those things we see and then we want them will some day belong to someone else and we will be somewhere else!

No wonder the Apostle Paul so passionately wrote, "So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal"  II Corinthians 4:18.

If you want to see further than you can see - and then eventually get there - fix your eyes on what is unseen!
