Walk by faith and not by sight. – 2 Corinthians 5:7
For shorthand, let’s define sight as imagining future realities.
This would mean to continue on your path by your belief based on knowledge and truth, not by what you imagine about the future. Hopes and fears would both require seeing in this capacity, where you look forward to either a good or bad event.
Faith would be based on truth, while sight is just looking at potential outcomes.
But if our goal is truth, seeing is not how we live the truest lives. If we walk by sight, we are constantly imaging future realities which may or may not be true.
Remember: The truest sight is the present. We can’t be present if we’re worrying about tomorrow or dreaming about what’s next.
