The Blindness

Whenever I go grocery shopping, I always end up buying stuff I already have at home because I didn’t see it in the pantry or the refrigerator… even though my wife told me exactly where it was. I completely missed it, even though it was right in front of me. I am going to assume you’re not blind, but I bet you know the feeling of looking for something and not finding it despite it being right in front of you.

We can be blind when it comes to the amazing things God is doing. His miracles are happening all around us, and we miss them. We get upset when He doesn’t answer our prayers the way we want and doubt His ability to perform miracles in our lives, yet that’s exactly what He’s doing. Like the blind man in the Sunday’s Gospel, sometimes we need to have our sight restored to truly see Christ working in front of us.
