There are times I can’t read the fine print on a label properly or numbers on an old piece of machinery or letters in a book. It is frustrating and limiting. Turning sixty recently didn’t help. It is comforting to have a magnifying glass on hand that aids reading these tricky and smaller letters. A magnifying glass is an enlarger, revealing what I can’t see and what I don’t even know. A good friend can do that for us, they can help us see things we don’t see or don’t want to see. The Bible says in Proverbs 19:20. “Take good counsel and accept correction, that’s the way to live wisely and well.” MSG. I’m reminded that the God of the Universe who loves me and with whom I have a friendship helps me use a magnifying glass in my life. This happens when I read the Bible, it is a huge magnifying glass. Don’t read it if you don’t want to change, don’t read if you want to discover all your blind spots. Read it if you truly want to be free because in John 8:32 it says- the truth will free you.
