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

Mark 8:22-25 New International Version (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.

Discussion point:  With a friend discuss how you view yourselves and how others may view you. How has your vision changed on your Christian journey? How do you view others? Do you feel you would beable to give people the opportunity to show you where they are before you decide on them 1st?  

Almighty God,
send down upon your Church
the riches of your Spirit,
and kindle in all who minister the gospel
your countless gifts of grace;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
