Why Not Me?

As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life.  Jesus said, “For judgment I have come into this world, so that the blind will see and those who see will become blind.” (John 9:1–3, 39, NIV 1984).

My Musings – Some people cannot see beyond their circumstances.  Blind to whatever works of God that might otherwise be displayed in their lives.  Not just for them to see, but for others to see as, well.  Others refuse to complain “why me?”  They are able to see that this is a fallen world, realizing that the real question is “why not me?”  None of us are deserving of “sight,”  yet to those who would “see,” God gives it to them.  Others, claiming they see things quite well, are spiritually blind.

My Advice – Look beyond the things of this world.  Catch a glimpse of Heaven through the life and death of Jesus Christ.  Then claim it as your own by believing and receiving.  Why not you?
