Looking in the Bible, by James Gilmore
Jesus encouraged looking. “Look, I tell you, lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest,” he tells his disciples while they are busy obsessing about food. (John 4:35b) The same admonition is surely warranted today. We’ve not only become a culture obsessed with food, but our eyes are increasingly lowered to some screen, with the digital realm our only field of vision.
