Having eyes, see ye not? And having ears, hear ye not?Mark 8:18 - King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)And do ye not remember?
Indeed, what is the point of having eyes if you don't see what's being shown? You'd see negativity rather than see the beauty unfolding around.
You have ears yet you don't diligently listen and worse, have dull understanding.
History is told again and again, yet the lesson of it is forgotten.
If neither eyes nor ears are being useful and you were asked, which would you choose to keep? Vision or hearing?Earlier, I tried to walk around my house with my eyes closed. I walked out of my bedroom, then through the hallway towards the living room. From there I struggled to find my way out through the front door. I hit my leg at one furniture and almost fell over the couch, which wasn't too bad because couch was soft.
It seems easy to find way around without eyesight especially if you can visualize the location of each rooms in the house and where furniture are. But how about making my favorite drink in the morning, my coffee? And how can I make my son's pancake if I can't see?
I want to die an old woman, with my good eyesight, knowing that I served my purpose as a mother to my only child and as a good citizen of my country. Therefore, I don't think I'd ever want to imagine to lose eyesight even if I can memorize my way around because vision is far more important to lose than hearing.
Try to walk around your own house blindfolded. Find out by yourself if you can reach the front door without falling off. When you've done so (or not), let me know whether you agree or disagree that vision is far more important.
