One man sat alone beside the highway begging,
His eyes were blind, the light he could not see;
He clutched his rags and shivered in the shadows,
Then Jesus came and bade his darkness flee.
As I walked past the #BusStop the other day a man asked me for change, I replied, “I don’t have any right now”. I went to #DunkinDonuts and when I came out that man had followed me I looked at him and gave him the change and I asked him, “Did you follow me here”? He replied, “yes” – I looked at him and smiled.
On my way back to work walked back passed the #BusStop and there was another man – his eyes were on fire, hot red – he asked if I had any change I told him, “I gave it to the man back there”. Then I remembered the description of Jesus – as described in Revelation 1:14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire…
Later that day I reached in pocket because “something” told me to – and there it was – the amount of money I had given the stranger that followed me to Dunkin Donuts. Yet I must admit I was for a moment moved by the eyes of the second young man. I thought to myself did I do something wrong by not giving the 2nd man any change? I thought about the scripture – Hebrews 13:2 Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
The song says the man was blind the light he could not see – the Bible describes Jesus as the “Light”my days of playing on the #monkeybars (If keep coming back you’ll find the meaning of the #Monkeybars) I was not looking for the #Light and did not want it to enter into my world I was living in.
Do you think we take the #scriptures too literal; perhaps there a deeper simpler meaning to the scriptures?
