I sometimes wonder whether I walk around blind or guilty; I think it's a bit of both. I walk around guilty when I know what I am called to do and how to act, and yet I ignore it. When I'm tired or cranky, I don't wish to see what is in front of me. I walk around blind when I haven't spent time with God and I temporarily lose the ability to see where God wants me to be and to see people the way He sees them. This story reminds me that I have chosen to be a follower of the One who gives sight, but I have to choose to see so that I may continue to walk with God. Walking with God means that I may have to see things in myself I don’t want to admit to, but I do because I know I am not alone. God is with me. He loves me.
