I was blind but now I see. Spiritually near-sightedness. The light of the world. Clarity of sight equated to responsibility.
From the songs we sing, to the emphasis of the biblical writers we read such as Matthew, Peter, Paul and especially John (be mindful this list is not all of the authors who could be included), the way we spiritually perceive things affects numerous areas in our life. Our ability to spiritually see, to focus and to follow reveals our values, our motivations, our principals and even our attitude about self and others.
I was recently reminded about all of the above truth while watching a very secular source – an old episode of The Alfred Hitchcock Hour! I encourage you to watch the episode and see if you can figure out how the episode will end. Your conclusion, compared to the show’s conclusion, may help you better see what I’m saying … it did for me.
“So He took the blind man by the hand and led him out of the town. And when He had spit on his eyes and put His hands on him, He asked him if he saw anything. And he looked up and said, “I see men like trees, walking.” Then He put His hands on his eyes again and made him look up. And he was restored and saw everyone clearly.” (Mark 8:23-25 NKJV)
