A Lesson for October 20th

Eyes

Luke 10:23 Then turning to the disciples, Jesus said to them privately, “Blessed are the eyes that see what you see!

The essence of spirituality is seeing what those without faith do not see. The essence of spirituality is looking for the hand of God in every event. The essence of spirituality is recognizing that God is with us in every moment: when enjoying the beauty of nature, when alone and suffering, and when sharing the company of good friends.

In today’s passage the disciples return to Jesus and report demons submitting to them in Jesus’ name. Jesus cautions them not to rejoice for these miracles but for having been claimed by God.

When spiritual people are praised for an accomplishment, they point beyond themselves to God working through them.

May you have eyes to see God working through you this day.
