Have you ever been so sure that you were right only to find out you were wrong. Maybe you ended up making a small bet with your spouse, lost, then found yourself making the bed next week. Maybe you even got angry in the conversation because you were positive you were correct. Sometimes we can be blinded by our belief in ourselves. We could never be wrong. We can get caught up in our own press, so to speak, that we miss the truth. Perhaps you have been blinded by ambition, blinded by anger, blinded by pride. In these conditions, we think we can see, but really we are so caught up in our own beliefs we miss the truth. The pharisees suffered from a type of blindness. This week we explore how Jesus gave sight to one man, whom the pharisees believed to be a sinner. Then see how Jesus showed the pharisees the reality of their own blindness which came from their lack of humility and inflated sense of self. In the end, pride blinds us from the truth. Pride, believing to much about yourself, leads to self destruction. Jesus taught that humility meant putting others before yourself and looking for opportunities to serve the least in our society. In doing that, we will gain a healthy perspective on our lives and others.
