The Blindfold of Affection

The Blindfold of Affection

Handout

Why do we fail to focus on what really matters? One reason is because our vision is impaired, and such impairment can be caused by a spiritual blindfold. Since a blindfold is simply something that deprives a person of sight by covering his or her source of vision, it is possible for us to put on a spiritual blindfold that inhibits our faith. In this series, we will expose some of the spiritual blindfolds that we intentionally or unintentionally wear so that we can remove them and see God’s will more clearly.

15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life[a]—is not from the Father but is from the world. 17 And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.”

1 John 2:15-17
