Overcoming our blind spots
We all have blind spots, those areas in our lives where we cannot see our own biases and limitations. They can be dangerous traps that prevent us from growing and experiencing the full range of life’s possibilities. Blind spots can be like a dense forest, where it is easy to get lost and never find our way out.
Our challenge is to be soberly self-aware, almost like having a map of the dense forest that is our minds. We can only do so by reflecting on our thoughts, actions, and behaviors until we understand our patterns, tendencies, and weaknesses.
When we have discovered our weaknesses and blind spots, it is through our faith in others and the love we receive that we can overcome our blind spots.
Mark 7:31-37. And immediately the man’s ears were opened, his speech impediment was removed, and he spoke plainly.
