“See what large letters I use as I write to you with my own hand!” (Gal. 6:11).
I found biblical proof that Paul used capitalization and large fonts when he wrote to the Galatians in 6:11: “See what large letters I use as I write to you with my own hand!”
In our modern world, I picture his sizable letters as large fonts or all caps. I’m partial toward his appreciation for exclamation marks! Perhaps Paul, being a New Testament writer, originated the Times New Roman script.
I experience an eye condition that requires me to increase font size when I use the computer. There’s limited texting on my flip phone, but thankfully it has an all-caps option so I can read short messages. I can only respond by emoji or voice mail. These eyesight challenges can be faced through physical accommodations. However, it’s vital for me to focus on spiritual vision. God’s 20/20 vision is clearer than my hindsight.
Paul used considerable letters to drive his point home. The scripture that follows Paul’s message to the Galatians says, “Those who want to impress people by means of the flesh are trying to compel you to be circumcised. The only reason they do this is to avoid being persecuted for the cross of Christ” (Gal. 6:12 NIV).
Gratefully, I’ve never undergone circumcision, but my mind and heart need spiritual flesh cutbacks. I require routine vision exams: What motivates my actions? Who do I listen to? What do I allow in my mind?
Great Opthalmologist, adjust my eyes to see Your perfect vision. Protect me from the world’s glare and help me understand Your writing. Thank you for capitalizing on Paul’s text to see from your lens on life.
WITH RENEWED VISION!
