Blind from birth; never to see a sunrise, a smile. He was a life waiting to be born: today, he became a new creation – a living testimony to Jesus healing work. Yet those around were unable to see him – as if they did, they would have to confront their own blindness.
God asks us to give; but how often do we think of excuses or reasons why perhaps we cannot? If only we had more time, or were more skilled? But if we had the time, the skills, the confidence or the money – how quickly would many of us give this back to God?
In the week ahead, why not leave a note where someone can find it, wishing them well in their lives and offering your support where life may be harder for someone else? Can your prayer reach a stranger in need?
