To much power!

Our Lord led this blind man out of town, put spit on his eyes and asked him if he saw ought. the blind man said "I see men as trees walking". now I have read many sermons and commentaries on this subject and it seems they all have one thing in agreement , that for many different reasons given our Lord was unable to accomplish the task when he first attempted it. some say because of their unbelief,others because of the area he was in......etc.If you all would bear with me a little in my folly, I heard that somewhere,lol may I suggest the one thing to consider that I found in kmow writings, and that is the possibility that our Lord gave him to much power and allowed him to see like God sees ! for the Lord indeed sees men as trees all through the word of God.God said "all my trees are full of sap" he spoke of the trees of Lebanon...he said in Eccl. if a tree falls to the north or the south ,in the place where the tree falls , there it is......

consider when our Lord touched his eyes again it was not to add more spit, rather to remove some!

and would our lives not be much better off in compassion and help to one another if we could all stop once in a while and see as God sees?

Thank you for the devotion.

I enjoyed your thoughts. We do need to meditate on how God sees us as we really are. On how God is compassionate for us, and give this compassion to others, in order to help them as God helped us. Maybe this is the spirit of Matthew 10:8, "... freely ye have received, freely give."

And again, departing from the coasts of Tyre and Sidon, he came unto the sea of Galilee, through the midst of the coasts of Decapolis. And they bring unto him one that was deaf, and had an impediment in his speech; and they beseech him to put his hand upon him. And he took him aside from the multitude, and [put his fingers into his ears], and he spit, and [touched his tongue]; And looking up to heaven, he sighed, and saith unto him, Ephphatha, that is, Be opened. And straightway his ears were opened, and the string of his tongue was loosed, and he spake plain. And he charged them that they should tell no man: but the more he charged them, so much the more a great deal they published it; And were beyond measure astonished, saying, He hath done all things well: he maketh both the deaf to hear, and the dumb to speak. (Mark 7:31-37)

Jesus also knew sign language: He put His fingers into the deaf mans ears to let him know that He (Jesus) knew that the man was DEAF. Then He (Jesus) touched the tongue of man who was MUTE to let him know the He (Jesus) knew that the man could not SPEAK.

God Bless!
