1 Samuel 16:1b, 6-7, 10-13a
My grandparents grew up with little to no visual stimulation from technology. Movies were luxury and TVs and computers weren't even invented. Children today know how to work an iPad before they can speak. We are now from almost the moment of our birth bombarded with visual imagery. This changes things for kids and for those of us who did not grow up iPad in hand.
All of this also helps us to understand what Jesus is trying to do for us today: open our eyes from the darkness of sin so that we might see with His eyes, the eyes of faith, hope, and love.
