Last week I had an appointment at the eye clinic for my annual visual field test. There are very few things in life that I am as bad at and dislike as much as a visual field test—just saying.
As a part of the test, the technician told me she had to map my blind spot. I must have looked confused because she explained that she needed to determine where my blind spots were in both eyes so they would not skew the results. And I thought, knowing where my blind spots are would be helpful for life in general.
Every one of us has blind spots, and not knowing what they are skew our results.
Those blind spots might be in our personality, marriage, children, politics, or how we view others. And while I’m not aware of a specific test that will reveal those blind spots, perhaps like King David, we need to ask God to search our hearts.
It has been said that there are none so blind as those who choose not to see, and while we may not be able to eliminate our blind spots, knowing where they are will make life easier for us and those around us.
Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
