Eyes Closed

Maybe Kanye West, in spite of his arrogance, had it right. It's time for each of us to close our eyes so we can see with our mind, our soul, our spirit. Times are hard- and they may get better; they may get worse; but we must start thinking about things beyond what we can see with our physical eyes. A battle's been brewing with our very souls at risk. We, I, most of us, get engulfed in the stuff offered by our world: money, sex, power, passion, consumerism- and get lost in a swirl that takes us down costing us the very fullest life possible. The one offered by Our Creator. What good does it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul? Jesus offered that question two thousand years ago, and it is a question worth asking ourselves today.
