The Sight of All Sights

Read the Bible in a year by reading Isaiah 31-33 today.
Isaiah said that the sinners and hypocrites in Zion asked, “Who among us shall dwell with the devouring fire?” (Isaiah 33:14). The devouring fire was a way of referring to God, evident from verses 10-13. From verse 15 to the end of the chapter, Isaiah answered the question. Look at this part of his answer as He spoke to those who would dwell with the Lord,
Your eyes will see the King in His beauty;
They will see the land that is very far off. (Isaiah 33:17)
Can you tell me of a sight greater than seeing God in His beauty and the land where He lives? You see beautiful things on the earth, but He is the Maker of those things. How beautiful He must be! How beautiful heaven must be! Do you want to see both Him and it? Then walk righteously, speak uprightly, despise the gain that comes from oppression, refuse bribes, do not listen to plots to destroy people, and do not look upon evil (Those things began Isaiah’s answer in verse 15).
Keep your eye focused on the great sights that await us, and you shall do the right things now.
