The Blind Leading the Blind

 
 
Greetings in the name of our Lord JESUS Christ,
 
A THOUGHT ON THE GOSPEL TODAY:
 
The Blind Leading the Blind.
 
SPIRITUAL MYOPIA   We are too near sighted. We see only those things within human-eye view.  We must become more far sighted...see beyond the physical to the spiritual--God's-eye view.   Lindy
 
I got to know a very wonderful old professor, Mr. Boris Dobro of Brooks Institute in Santa Barbara, California.  This professor taught me to see the things that most people just look at.  I also learned to give new meaning to the things that we would call simple and not finding  much value in them.  Many of us live in a world of blindness because some of us don’t want what Blind Bartimaeus asked of Christ Jesus, “Lord, I Want to See.”
 
We know or have known of many persons who have served our country well but had a sense of blindness about them.  I know speak of President George Washington a truly great man.  In his blindness he stated in his “Will” that all of his African American Slaves are to be freed not after his death but after the death of his wife Martha.  Think about this, every day and night for the rest of her life it must have crossed her mind that one or more of those slaves might take her life in order to be free.  All of us from time to time have blindness which can effect others without truly thinking about it at the time.
 
King Duncan talks about many unhappy people in their blindness who cannot put their finger on what is really causing their distress.  Many unfulfilled people cannot even tell you what it would take to satisfy them.  Many of us have no clear idea or conception what our real needs, our real desires, and our real priorities are.  And because we have never defined the problem or clarified our goals, we spend a lifetime anxiously wandering with very little to show for the pilgrimage on death.  We must pray to see God’s eye view.
 
Take time to pray, to meditate on the world of God and find out what He wants for you in this life and ask for the vision to see the journey you are to go on in doing His will.  I often talk about how we must walk by faith and not by slight, and walk by the light unto our feet and not by the light unto our eyes.  This can only happen when you follow God through His Word, open yourself up to the power of the Holy Spirit, and take time to hear the small still voice of God talking to you.  Don’t let the blinding light and noise of Satan cause you to be blind to all the wonderful things God has for you in this life and the next to come.
 
In the Master’s Yoke

I'm really loving the theme/design of your website. Do you ever run into any web browser compatibility problems? A handful of my blog visitors have complained about my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome. Do you have any tips to help fix this problem?
