Daily Digest #66

If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. —John 14:3

I was reading today's gospel from Mark 10:46-52 in bed. It's about a blind man who received sight, and how his faith had healed him. I wondered how great this man's faith could be. Then I realized that one can only find real faith in love. The blind man couldn't have trusted God with all his life and hope if he did not love him. He must have known deep in his heart that Jesus Christ was indeed his Savior, his Healer, and the Son of God. He must have had a very intimate connection with Him, though he could not see. Yet God had made him see... much clearer than anybody who have had sight all their lives. I guess it applies to any other personal issues we encounter, like forgiveness. We can never forgive if we do not love first. Because we let love overpower everything else, making us do even what we think is impossible.

For this, may we learn to truly love God. It is easy to claim such love, yet hard to practice in everything that we do. No matter how much we testify of how great our love is for God, it is worthless if our own hearts speak out the opposite. May we learn about Him more, know him more, and have an intimate relationship with Him, just as the blind man had. Then, in His time, He will let us see all His wonders, exactly as how He intends for each of us to see. Pray always.
