Topic: Lord, That I May See

Scripture: Luke 18: 38-42

If Jesus were standing in front of you, and asked you what you wanted him to do, what would you ask for? The blind man asked that he might see again. He wanted Jesus to heal his blindness physically. There are times when I have asked Jesus to open my eyes to what is around me. I can be blind to how people are feeling, and have caused problems by being totally insensitive. I once had a secretary who complained that I “hover” so I told her she could call me on it whenever I did it.

That’s one of my minor faults, and occurred after I realized my problem and was actually trying to be better! Do you have a blind spot? Maybe blindness isn’t an issue for you as it is for me, but there’s probably something you would like. Jesus wants to help us. In the Gospels he is always telling us to ask.

He probably didn’t mean that he would help us win the lottery, but he probably would help direct us to a potential job. We also might not receive an immediate healing as the blind man did, but patience is also a gift we can use. Perhaps the sight we need is to see the good qualities in people. I have a friend who is a wonderful youth minister. He is also great as a spiritual director for those who have had a troubled past.

When I first met him with his long hair pulled into a pony tail and the tattoos running up and down his arms, I had to hold back my judgment based on his appearance and get to know the person. I’m so glad I did! As I said, his ability to relate to youth and the wonderful way he could introduce teens to Jesus is so impressive. He is a great reminder not to judge by appearances. I’ve let you know where I needed help; now it’s your turn.

Prayer For Today
Thank you, Lord, for helping me with my blind spots, and I trust that you will continue to heal me. Amen.
