A day ago my friend had surgery on his eye to remove a cancer from it. I can’t even imagine what that feels like having someone cut my eye open to remove something, plus the thought of losing your eye sight if the surgery went wrong. The next thought that ran through my mind was a more pleasant one however. John 9:6-7 Having said this, he spit on the ground, made some mud with the saliva, and put it on the man’s eyes. “Go,” he told him,” wash in the pool of Siloam.”So the man went and washed, and came home seeing. This is a parable about how we open our eyes to seeing Jesus, but not just in a physical sense. This reassured me as I prayed for my friend. Even though he could lose a portion of his eye sight if the surgery went wrong, I knew that my friend truly sees Jesus. Heavenly Father thank you for blessing us with another beautiful day. Help us to truly see you working in and around our lives today. Thank you for the opportunity to share what we see with others. In Jesus precious name AMEN.
