So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:18 NIV
The world cannot understand. It seeks after that which is seen. They do not know, nor will they accept the fact that that which is seen is only temporary. The unseen is that which should be sought, for this is what is eternal. This is total foolishness to those who belong to this world. One must have spiritual eyes in order to see that which is unseen. Christ has told us not to store up earthly treasures, but rather to store up heavenly treasures, that which shall be forever. That which is seen leads to instant gratification, but that which is unseen leads to eternal joy and peace. Search not for that which is seen, but for that which is hidden. It is not out of your reach. You just need a heart and soul in the proper place to find the hidden. Christ reveals eternal truths to those who will see and hear with spiritual eyes.
