We’ve all been blind…at least once. I was listening to James McDonald on Family Talk Radio and he shared this story…
James had a friend in college who was leaving class with his books in hand. All of the sudden, someone came from out of nowhere, bumped into him on the stairs, and knocked all of his books out of his hands. His friend immediately got up in anger and shouted at this person in a very unkind rant, then noticed that there, on the ground, lie a walking stick, used by the blind. The person who had bumped into James’ friend couldn’t see…Had he known that it was a blind man who ran into him, his attitude would have been much different. Instead of anger, he would have offered compassion. Instead of a rant, he would have offered help.
We were ALL once blind. We bumble and stumble and cause God heartache when we blindly wander away from Him. BUT, He isn’t angry with us…He knows that we are blind, and so He patiently waits for us to look up, so that He can give us the light we need to see.
Aren’t we too quick to judge the “blind?”…why not, instead of judgement,
give them light…not more darkness…
someone did that much for each of us.
Life feels like a competition…when we’re all on the same team.
