Eyes – Thoughts from the Edge

Learning often comes by watching, especially watching the hands. Much of what I learned about cars, plumbing, roofing, and electrical wiring, I learned from my Dad. When I read the Psalm for this week, Psalm 123, I could not help but think of watching Dad’s hands at work.

The songwriter used looking at hands as a way to signal where we should set our eyes. Today we would say our eyes should be considering the ways of Jesus. Attentive to the manner in which he loved and cared for people calls from us similar commitments and patterns – if we would keep our eyes on Jesus, the Christ.
