Subject: Who’s Leading Whom?
Reference: Matthew 15:14
14 “Let them alone; they are blind guides of the blind. And if a blind man guides a blind man, both will fall into a pit.”
Have you heard about the elderly woman on a busy street corner who was confused and hesitant to cross because of the heavy traffic? Finally a gentleman came up to her and asked if he could cross the street with her.
Gratefully she took his arm, but grew increasingly more alarmed as he zigzagged randomly across the street, to the blare of horns and screech of tires.
Finally on the opposite curb, she said furiously, “You almost got us killed! You walk like you’re blind.” “I am,” he replied. “That’s why I asked if I could cross with you.”
- Jesus said of the Pharisees of His day: “They be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch”. We need to be very careful not to entrust our souls to the guidance of someone who cannot see the clear teachings of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Our eternal destiny is too important to put at such risk.
