Blind to the Obvious
Because the teachers of the law were focused on the world and self, they were blind to God in the flesh – even though He was standing right in front of their eyes. Quite often we too can have the same issue. Whether it is not fully understanding scripture; or being concerned about the things of the world; or being overly focused on self-glory and self-satisfaction; we can often become blind to God – even though He’s working right in front of our eyes. In Mark 12.35-44 Jesus gives a warning that can help us to see - when we’re blind to the obvious.
