Leviticus 1-3, Matthew 20
A group called Mosaic works with “disabled” people and they did a Bible study with one of my classes. They focused on the verse where Jesus heals the blind. What I had never noticed before is that Jesus doesn’t assume that the blind wish to see—he asks them what they want. He gives them that authority, even though the rest of society is content in hushing them up and bossing them around.
15 Am I not allowed to do what I choose with what belongs to me? Or do you begrudge my generosity?’
Sometimes I do begrudge his generosity — when I’m asked to forgive those who’ve sinned against me, as he forgives me and those who’ve sinned against him. He is always the more generous.
Lord, I want to follow you and your ways instead of always clamoring for “fairness”. Your ways are not always my ways, and your thoughts are not my thoughts.
