In life it is very easy to become blind when we have the eyes to see, and it is also very easy to become deaf when we have the ears to hear… Everyday we are faced with different trials, different objectives and different circumstances that can cause us to be imprisoned within our own life instead of enjoying the freedom that we have in the spirit of God through Jesus Christ.
When we become so busy or so focused on our own objectives that we can’t hear or see the love and the needs that are all around us, then we need to take a step back in order to maintain our balance in life. It is Satan’s goal to restrict us to the point that we can’t see past our own lives to the lives of others, and when we become so wrapped up in ourselves then we are being robbed of the love that needs to be shared.
Life is not about what we want or what we gain in this world as Adam displayed in the Garden of Eden, but about what Jesus taught us in how we are to live in the freedom which God has given and how to help others along the way. We all have our own issues and go through different trials in life in order to learn how to help someone else in theirs. I challenge you today and every other day to not be so consumed in your life that you can’t help or encourage someone else in theirs. We never know what that one word of encouragement can do for someone else when we allow the love of Jesus to shine through…amen
