What We See Depends On What We Are

And so passing into deeper regions we detect the truth the Master is proclaiming. He is proclaiming that what we spiritually see really depends on what we are.

As the lamp conditions the aspect of the room, so does the inward eye condition everything.

We see by life and character, by all that we have made ourselves, by every secret sin that we have cherished, by every battle we have fought and won.

There was He, moving in their midst, shining in the splendor of good deeds.

He was set on a candlestick, visible, conspicuous, radiant in loveliness of life. 

Yet some said He was beside Himself, and some that He was a glutton and a wine-bibber, and others that He cast out devils by Beelzebub.

They saw by what they were.

Bound in their ancient prejudices, angry at being interfered with, eager to justify themselves, convicted of their sin, they described the Carpenter, but could not see the LORD.

If any of my readers are like that...if they see the Carpenter but cannot see the LORD...let me ask them, tenderly and quietly, What kind of life have you been living?
