2 Corinthians 5:7 gives a reminder and exhortation that believers are to “walk by faith, not by sight.” “Walk” speaks of how we live our lives, conduct ourselves, behave, and use the time and opportunities God has ordained for us. Walking “by sight” speaks of choosing to live based upon how things naturally appear, feel, and seem at first glance. Those who walk by sight rely upon fleshly instincts and temporal pleasures to make decisions. They are concerned with the present rather than the eternal and with blending in with the world rather than with keeping the commands of Christ. Walking by sight is selfish, shallow, and according to the Scripture, a totally insensible way to live. Walking by faith, on the other hand, makes sense if we understand what faith is and the profound glory of what it accomplishes and gives back to us in return.
