Path to Wholeness

Be humble and steadfast in pursuing Goodness.

Luke 18:41-42

Jesus asked him, “What do you want me to do for you?” He replied, “Lord, please let me see.” Jesus told him, “Have sight; your faith has saved you.”

When a blind man heard that Jesus was passing by…he called out to Jesus…and kept calling out to Jesus…even to the point that others in the crowd were telling him to be quiet.

Notice that Jesus did not simply assume that the blind man wanted to see. Jesus asked him what he wanted him to do for him.

While his blindness was obvious…most of our blindness is not.

Do you realize that you are also blind to things beyond your current understanding?

I know that I am!

But how many people…especially when it comes to the topic of religion…think they know everything there is to know?

Instead of pontificating and judging…what if such people put as much effort into humility and compassion? What if they practiced what Jesus called the “greatest commandments”: to love God and their neighbor as themselves (Matthew 22:37-39)?

Perhaps then their eyes would be opened and their blindness removed.

If we humbled ourselves like the blind man…we, too, would be on the path to restoration, wholeness and discovering our true selves (“saved”).

Do you want to see?
