This passage is perhaps one of the most touching in Mark’s Gospel, as a blind man describes sight for the first time as being like seeing trees walking around. His honest and genuine answer is a powerful testament to the way Jesus has transformed his life.
As Christians, we believe that we were once blind, but that God has given us new sight that allows to see the world in new and exciting ways. Just like the blind man we have a story of ‘seeing’ for the first time, of how our lives were transformed by the power of God.
What is your story of how God has acted in your life? How can you share it with the honesty of the blind man?
