If you can only see things up close, you are myopic—near-sighted. Myopia can also be a way of thinking where you lack imagination, foresight or intellectual insight.
Those who only see the world and God’s work in light of their own age-stratified viewpoint suffer from mono-generational myopia. This vision impairment can happen to anyone young or old.
The person, who only sees the past generations and themselves as the last generation that really counts, will not bring blessing to the future.
The ones who can only measure from their generation forward, and believe that all that came before were insignificant, will have no sense of history, stability or resource for the future.
Jesus had much to say about the myopic people of his own time.
May God help us in every generation to dance when God plays a song, weep when God sings a sad song and wisely understand those players He chooses to use. Jesus encountered a community that was not responsive to God. Let us not be guilty of being the wallflowers at God’s dance. Let’s passionately respond to the One who calls us to join in.
