Blessed Are You

Today's Reading: Matthew 13-16

But blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear. Matthew 13: 16 NRSV

Have you ever realized how blessed you are?

For you are not one of the crowds who hear the parable but not the explanation. You are not those who are like sheep without a shepherd. You are not the lost but the found.

You are a disciple of Jesus Christ. As such, you have eyes that see and ears that hear.

You are blessed.

Do you realize how many longed to be where you are? And still how many long for what you have?

Live as one who is blessed, one who has eyes that see and one who has ears that hear.

God, you have blessed us with eyes and ears that see and hear. Help us to use what we are blessed with to further you kingdom. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
