I love the "touche'!" story in Matthew 15, where near the end, the woman says: "Truth, Lord, yet the dogs eat of the crumbs which fall from their master's table".
I'm sure that to some, people such as I, legally blind, and people who may have other physical ailments, are misfits, or - if you will, "crumbs", in that we are not physically attractive or, to use an old-fashioned word: "comely". We may be "crumbs" to some, yet still we are from The Master.
Today was a state holiday, so my workplace was closed. My nephew didn't have to work today either, so he and the granddaughter of a lady where we worship, came over awhile about noon, after having gone to a bookstore earlier. He worked on his truck a little, then we 3 went for burgers.
The young lady is one who might be considered a "crumb" because of some physical problems with which she was born, but think of this: Isaiah 53, in speaking of the Messiah, says: "... he shall grow up as a tender plant ... as a root out of dry ground, he hath no form nor comeliness ... and there is no beauty that we should desire him ..." In other words, The Christ was not handsome; why do we think we should be?
Besides, God looks on US - what we are, not what we look like (1 Samuel 16:7). And thanks to 2 young people, my day was beautiful!
To be insightful means to intuitively grasp things - an "aha!" moment!
- I am a member of the church of Christ. I have been writing things since I was little. Some have been printed, some posted. I write to teach or encourage; to blow off steam; and for fun! I had my own motorcycle in my 40s; I was a bluegrass music DJ for about 13 years; I've performed some. I am a member of the NRA. In 2003 (age 59), I became high partial legally blind; in 2005, I had to get hearing aids! Franklin Field said: "Poor eyes limit your sight; poor vision limits your deeds". And no kidding, the picture was made April, 2012!
