I Can See Clearly Now

But the Lord said to him, "Go, for he is a chosen vessel of Mine to bear My name before Gentiles, kings, and the children of Israel. For I will show him how many things he must suffer for My name's sake" (Acts 9:15-16).

It is not always easy to see what needs to be seen. Ananias could not yet see in Saul of Tarsus what God knew. Oh, he knew that Saul was a dedicated and zealous individual. The man had character, no doubt. Ananias just couldn’t yet see how God would use such a man.

Truth is sometimes obvious. It might be verified by scientific tests and empirical evidence. Mathematic, chemical, and other scientific in- formation works well with such testing. Not all truth can be tested in the same way. Some truth is dependent on human judgment. Under He- brew law there was a need to have two or three witnesses to verify a le- gally questioned matter. Whatever the method, the effort was to see clearly, and hopefully to see the truth of the matter at hand.

Truth is sometimes not so obvious. Lines can be blurred in the minds of ordinary people. When people are fed “half-truths” long enough, they consider what they have heard to be the truth. Actually, truth becomes little more than an ambiguous fog. As a lady once con- fided in me, “All truth is relative, you know.” Evidence is lost to those who will not measure it by an established standard.

In times when the lines are blurred, there is still a matter of clarity. It is not really measurable in the same way a mathematic equation might be. Still, it might be even more impacting. We may describe this qual- ity in many ways, but it all comes back to the same thing. It is what we commonly call character. No matter what the perception of truth might be in any time or culture, character counts.

It may be a challenge to verify truth, but character will always come

into focus. Character will be clearly seen.
