What is that?

The doctor tilted the glasses a little lower down his nose. As he flipped the card, he asked, “Now, what do you see?” In the middle of the card was a splotch of ink, similar in shape and color to the oil stain on a driveway. “I see a beautiful meadow with a pristine creek meandering through the willows. A doe and her fawn drink silently as the morning dew glistens their coats.” the patient replied.
Huh?!!!

Two boys are lying on their back in the middle of a beautiful meadow. A pristine creek continues its never ending journey to the sea thousands of miles away. A doe and her fawn have been interrupted from their morning drink and now have fled for the safety of the forest. “I see a bird and a plane and a bus and an old man’s face. What do you see?” asked boy number one. “Well there’s a volcano, a rabbit, and a dog.” Boy number two replied. They lay there for hours watching as God changed the picture time and time again by sending winds to shift the clouds into different shapes and sizes.

“That boy will never amount to anything. He’s just like his daddy and his daddy is in prison doing twenty to life. They ought to just go ahead and lock him up too and do society a favor.” The teacher looked at a coworker with an air of superiority and an everybody should be as perfect as me look on her face. The coworker just had a wistful look on her face and said, “Yes, let’s do society a favor.” Then going over to the young boy and putting her arm around him said, “I love you, and you have so much potential to do something great with your life.”

Simeon looked at the baby. A normal baby boy. Dark brown eyes. Brown, almost black hair. Proud parents. Who could have guessed what he saw as he took the child in his arms? Why would the tears well up in his eyes? After all, it wasn’t his child or grandchild. In fact, he had never laid eyes on the boy. But something about the child made Simeon exclaim that he could now go to his grave in peace upon viewing the baby. He had seen something that few people had seen in the young boy. He had seen the Lord’s Salvation. God’s plan of redemption. The Righteousness of God.

After all, sometimes it is just how we look at something that really matters.
