This morning I read the above in “Our Daily Bread,” which is part of…my daily bread I guess. Verses 41 and 42 in particular struck a chord with me.
Isn’t v41 something Jesus asks of us all?
What do you want me to do for you?
What did I want him to do for me?
It makes me think of the below scene from “The Matrix,” when Neo has to choose between real knowledge and intentional ignorance.
I think that’s what I wanted. I wanted to see, and I wanted to know.
The world and my part in it never made a lot of sense to me before coming to faith.
Could life really be that random?
Lord, I want to see.
My gift of sight came at the edge of the Colorado river, looking across to Arizona.
It’s not really as simple as taking a big red DayQuil of course.
But our faith does grant us sight, and helps us to discover the intentionality to life that was always there.
Do you want that?
Do you want to see?
Because once you take the red pill, you can’t be blind again.
