"Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that things which are seen were not made of things which do appear."
Hebrews 11:3

"Granny's Glasses"

A little boy said to his playmate, "When I get old, I want to wear glasses just like Granny's because she can see much more than most people. She can see good in a person when everyone else sees their bad. She can see what a fellow meant to do even if he didn't do it. I asked her one day how she could see so good, and she said it was the way she learned to look at things when she grew older. When I get older, I want a pair of glasses just like Granny's so I can see good, too."

Evidently Barnabas, about whom we read in the book of Acts, had a pair of Granny's glasses. When the Apostle Paul did not want to take John Mark on the second missionary journey because he had turned back the first time, Barnabas took Mark, and he turned out well!

How different our world would be if we all wore a pair of Granny's glasses! I would look for the good in you, and you would look for the good in me, and lives would be so much more pleasant.

At times, we are like the buzzard that likes to dwell upon what is rotten and ugly, when we should be like the hummingbird that looks for what is sweet and beautiful.

Perhaps we all need to try on a pair of Granny's glasses!

"And let us consider one another to provoke unto love
and to good works."

Hebrews 10:24
