Blind + + + +

*Life, death* We live in a world of life & death. We embrace the one – abhor the other. Abhor it or not, we live facing death, everyday walking towards its final door. Death is the end of life – or – is it? Beyond death is Life for the saint, life everlasting, life which has no death, at the end. But beyond death for the sinner is a second death (Rev 2.11ff), a death, if you’ll allow the idea, without life, ever. *Now*, we have a glimpse of each – do we want Life or do we want death?

BLIND?

‘Twould be sad to awaken blind

And suddenly to realize,

You had no use of any kind

For your two, now sightless eyes.

 

The dilemma would be more sad,

If looking back in your new “night,”

You remembered, you never had

Thanked God for His gift of sight.

– eab, 1/28/18

Mat 6.15

“But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”

 

*Carnal or Not?* When buying fine china hold the base with fingertips of one hand & slightly flip the upper edge with a finger nail of the other. You should hear a high-pitched “ping.” If the cup/bowl/pitcher is cracked you’ll hear a dull, less interesting sound – set it down & walk away. When the world taps (or even slaps) a holy person there’s a true “ring.” But if carnality’s present there’s a difference /they-can-hear/. (I bought/sold a few antiques yrs ago – 1st business card was “Heritage Antiques & Accents” on what Cincy folks later knew as “Hamburger Alley.”

BLIND

 

To see a sunset,

And be atheist yet

‘Tis hard.

That bard, * God knew

Though stone blind.

May you seek like mind.

– eab, Nov. ’66

Jesus, who touched the blind man’s eyes,

Was God, so He had no surprise

That the man saw things “in the rough.”

A single touch was not enough.

When will we, this truth realize?  – eab,  3/14/08
