61. “Open your eyes, and look to the fields…” (John 4:35).
That’s what Jesus is always trying to get His disciples to do. For centuries the Israelites failed to see their role as sharing the truth of their God with others. They decided He was their own inheritance and that failure created a lot of unhealthy realities. We must lift our eyes to see what God sees if we will ever find ourselves doing what God would have us do. What we can’t see, we can’t reach for. And what we don’t reach for, we will never obtain. All growth in God’s purposes starts when we lift our eyes and see the need in the lives of others.
