GLEANINGS from the Daily Office – Lasik Won’t Help!

GLEANINGS (from the Daily Office) – Lasik Won’t Help – Year One, Proper 25, Wednesday, October 28, 2015, Matthew 13:10-17

“ . . . many prophets and righteous men longed to see what you see . . .”

Not everybody gets it. Some see. Others don’t. Some hear. Others don’t.

Those who get it, however, may not fully realize what it is. It’s big.  Others have waited for years, no, decades, no, centuries, for what is coming to pass. “The hopes and fears of all the years are met in thee tonight.” Theirs was a world void of hope and it had been for a long time. But now hope has come. A recalcitrant people can be reconciled to God.

This is the Lamb of God. He is not another prophet heralding a future event. He is not just one among many moral exemplars after which we may order our lives. He is not extending grace to a world without indicting and condemning truth. He is the Savior! “There is no other name under heaven by which men must be saved.”

Some see. Others don’t. Some hear. Others don’t. Things have not changed all that much.

–Frodo: “I wish none of this had happened.” Gandalf: “So do all who live to see such times, but that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us.”–
