John 12:44-50
I once asked a blind man what the greatest obstacle was that he felt he had to overcome. He replied: “My greatest problem is that everybody I talk to just thinks of me as a blind man. They may express sympathy, but it is not sympathy I want. It is understanding that I am not just a blind man. I want them to just see ME.” We all possess something of the beauty and grace of God. Often, we are quick to see the brokenness, the defects, the negatives at the expense of overlooking the possibilities, the hope, the good.
