I was talking to my son-in-law, David, about the story when Jesus touched the blind man and asked him if he could see — and he said, “Not really — I see men as trees walking.” Then Jesus touched him again and he could see clearly. David said, “That was how I was as a teen — so worried about myself I didn’t really see people.” But today David is in his mid-twenties and I see him being very conscious of others, a good listener, and a thoughtful responder.
We need a second, third, and continual touch from Jesus to let go of our self obsession, our idols, and our blindness. I’d love to hear your stories on new ways, through the Word, through suffering, or through others that Jesus has opened your eyes.
Please share your stories and insights. How has Jesus touched you and helped you to see more clearly recently?
