SINGLENESS OF VISION

The story of Noah and the ark of refuge always stands out in memory as a symbol of the tender, protecting love of God in that mental habitation which ever floats above the waters of mortal sense. The description given in Genesis of the building of the ark, emphasizes one point that upon close study gives us the key to successful resistance and victory over the pressing claims of evil. Jesus, in preparing his students for their work against the seeming powers of darkness, said: "If therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light."

Following the same divine guidance of the Christ, Noah builded but one window in his ark, and it was "above," opening not upon the earth, but upon the heavens. Noah was wide-awake to the claims of evil, and was prepared to meet them and keep above them until the allness of good should be manifest. He knew the awful manner of its self-destruction, but he also knew that his own safety, and the safety of those with him, lay in contemplating only reality,—the works of God, good.
