Sight: a Reflection on Psalm 118, Psalm 131, Joshua 3:14-4:7, Ephesians 5:1-20 and John 9:1-38

John reminds us that sight is most important. Each healing of a blind person was coupled with a discussion of sin. Jesus taught that the blind were not blind because of sin but that those who said they could “see”, sin was very much alive. Jesus judged the arrogance of a person claiming they could “see” and Jesus wasn’t referring to literal sight but to spiritual things. No one can see spiritual things unless God gives them sight. Oh how I know that truth. The LORD is my strength and my might. I am so encouraged by the psalmist. As I grow in the strength and might that the LORD gives me, I celebrate the reality that God has become my salvation; salvation is not separated from the person of God Almighty. It was God who went before the Ark of the Covenant and cut off the water so the people could cross the Jordan. My soul has been calmed and quieted. Thank you God for forgiving me in Christ. In my brokenness I am reminded to be careful how I live.

Scripture texts are taken from the two-year daily lectionary cycle which follows the liturgical calendar and begins on the First Sunday of Advent.
