The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. (Marcel Proust, 19th-20th century French novelist)

Often we don’t see clearly what is right around us. Residents who live in tourist areas often fail to appreciate the wonders around them. Others miss the opportunities available to them because they don’t see them. What’s worse, we often are so focused on the material and temporal that we miss the significance of spiritual values.

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)
