Lazaroo – Friday, August 19, 2011

Aug 19, 2011 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, begging God for 20/20 spiritual vision:

“…make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love…if anyone does not have them, he is nearsighted and blind…”
(2 Peter 1:5-7, 9)

Well, that explains a lot, Jesus!

No wonder I keep stumbling.

The problem isn’t that it’s too dark in the room –

it’s my eyes.

Although You’ve given me a measure of each of these qualities, I need much more.

But I do have one question:

How can I be both –

nearsighted
and blind?

Wouldn’t it be one or the other?

Unless what You’re telling me is…

not having a quality – like “faith” –

keeps me from seeing what You’re doing
until it’s right under my nose

while not having one of the others – like “love” –

leaves me blind as a bat.
