Color Blind People See Things Differently

One day a friend of mine said, “I have no idea what the color green looks like.” Until then, I didn’t know that he was color blind. I pointed to some grass and asked, “What color is that to you?” He said, “It looks yellow to me.” It dawned on me that the world I can see isn’t the same world that he sees.  

People who don’t believe in Jesus cannot see what God wants them to see. I heard a pastor tell about what he was like before he became a follower of Jesus. He said, “My family would point out my faults but I couldn’t see them. I got mad at them and told them they were the problem, not me. I didn’t realize that I was blind, and a blind man cannot see no matter how hard he tries to see. But when I gave my life to Christ, my eyes were opened. I could finally see what they were talking about.

People are in darkness because they have a veil over their heart which makes them spiritually blind. “But whenever a man turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away” (2 Cor. 3:16). To “turn” means to repent and have a change of heart. Jesus explained that the condition of a person’s heart determines whether they can see or not see (Matt. 13:14-16)

So the next time a person attacks your faith, remember that a blind person cannot see no matter how hard he tries to see. Don’t retaliate but pray for the person’s heart to change. Only that will open their eyes.
