Do you have any experience with blindness or diminished sight? What was/it like?
Have you ever felt like someone hasn’t really seen you?
Have you ever discovered you were “blind” to a situation? What was it like to finally “See” it?
Acting on the Word
Each day, take at least 5 minutes to pause and really see: Take note of everything in your range of vision. Thank God for the good things; pray for those things you see that trouble you. If you have diminished vision, try this exercise with another sense (hearing, touch, or taste).
