Blinded to what is dangerous and beautiful.
Acts 27:39 “When daylight came, they did not recognize the land, but they saw a bay with a sandy beach, where they decided to run the ship aground if they could.”
Last year I visited St Pauls bay in Malta, a beautiful place which hid its stormier past. You would not recognise it as the place where this storm and battered ship had gone aground on the beach.
Luke writes that they did not recognise it was Malta. They only saw land and headed for it.
The point is this:
Post storm it is sometimes hard to recognise and accept the difficulty what people have gone through.
But in the storm it is hard to recognise anything good that will come through this tough experience.
Blindness occurs in everyone at some point.
