31 Days of Questions: Day 7

7

“Do you see this woman?”  Luke 7:44

 Of course he saw her.

She was right there in his dining room.

Simon, the Pharisee, looked at her tangled hair hanging down, her shabby clothes, the dirt under her fingernails.

He observed her emotional display of tears and was repulsed.

He watched her unclean hands touch the Teacher, kiss His feet, pour perfume on them.

He thought he was witnessing an embarrassing scene, socially awkward and shameful.

But he didn’t see her.

Give me Your eyes for just one second
Give me Your eyes so I can see
Everything that I keep missing
Give me Your love for humanity

Give me Your arms for the broken hearted
The ones that are far beyond my reach
Give me Your heart for the one’s forgotten
Give me Your eyes so I can see
