Today's session is on the bible reading Mark 8 22-25

Mark 8:22-25  (NIV)  Jesus Heals a Blind Man at Bethsaida

22 They came to Bethsaida, and some people brought a blind man and begged Jesus to touch him. 23 He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village. When he had spit on the man’s eyes and put his hands on him, Jesus asked, “Do you see anything?”
24 He looked up and said, “I see people; they look like trees walking around.”
25 Once more Jesus put his hands on the man’s eyes. Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly.

Meeting with Jesus was a life-changing experience for the blind man, but he didn’t see the whole picture instantly. We often have distorted images
of ourselves, other people and situations; it is only when we let Jesus take control that we are able to see things more clearly.

Think about how we view ourselves and how we think people may view us. 

Do we always give others a chance to show themselves before we have decided about them? 

Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name;
thy kingdom come;
thy will be done;
on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation;
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom,
the power and the glory,
for ever and ever.
