Wednesday of the Second Week of Lent

Psalm 119:73-96Genesis 42:18-281 Corinthians 5:9-6:8 Mark 4:1-20

Mark 4:12: “. . . they may look and look and see nothing.”

Jesus is describing some followers to his disciples. If God is loving energy within all and around all, as I believe, the Divine is acting in every moment. We need the eyes to see. Perhaps we should reverse the statement, “seeing is believing” to say that “believing is seeing.”

Often stillness or a time away can prepare us to look from the heart—from within. Expectant awareness can help us begin to see life as an exciting spiritual journey. Connections appear. Certain people will “be there” just when we need them. Or, a book will appear that seems to have been written for us to read at this particular time.

Two people can look at the same scene or event. One sees the ordinary. The other sees a miracle. May we help one another to be the latter.
