Even though the religious leaders were supposed to be, well, leaders, they were BLIND that Jesus HEALED. The only thing that they SAW was the fact that people began to believe Jesus instead of their rules.
How are we blind in our own lives?
For those of us that have children, have they ever painted you the most beautiful picture and all you saw was the mess?
Have your children even tried to make you breakfast but all you saw were the dishes that you had to clean?
What about when our significant other does all the laundry for us but leaves the clean mountain on the bed..
What do we see? Do we see the help and love that is being given or are we focusing on things that bother US?
It takes some serious self reflection to realize when we are in fact BLIND. We need to ask God to heal our hearts so that we are no longer blind to the love that God gives us through those closest to us.
"Heavenly Father, I know I have been blind in many ways. To You and my loved ones, Please shine your love into my heart so that I will no longer be blind. Guide my actions to see the love in all things. In Jesus name, Amen."
Let's start experiencing the love that God shines down on us through our friends and family. Let's open our eyes to the most beautiful and fulfilling love that we will ever experience. Let God let us see.
