We all have some sort of tunnel vision in our own life. When it comes to the life of a congregation it can be harmful and in some cases deadly. It happens when we only see one way forward, or only believe that there is one way to do any given activity and we find ourselves bumping into different points of view.
Bartimaeus says to Jesus “Teacher, I want to see.” Seeing for Bartimaeus means healing and an ability to participate in society in ways that currently are not an option.
Can you identify the areas in your life where you have tunnel vision? How can God help you to see?
Prayer: God help me to see more clearly, help me to grow in the servant ministry of Christ today. Amen.
