Number Eight: More than Seeing

March 22, 2017

Here in the middle of Lent 2017, it’s my joy to share Ten Reminders for Laypeople…but wow they sure apply to us pastors as well. With gratitude to Linna Bradford who graciously agreed to let me share these with you, here’s number eight —

A blind person asked St. Anthony: “Can there be anything worse than losing eye sight?” He replied: “Yes, losing your vision!” 

— Let’s keep this simple, with only two things:

My dad loved to tell me that most people find what they’re looking for. So, to continue to dangle that participle, watch out for what you’re watching out for.

That’s Solomon clearing his throat over there in the corner. Yup, King Solomon from the Old Testament. Now that he has our attention, he says, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” While we’re nodding in agreement, he finishes his thought; check it out at Proverbs 29:18.

See you (no pun intended) back here tomorrow.
