We are blind. Blind to the future. Just ask Jairus. He is the leader of the synagogue, the most important man in the community. But the Jairus in this Bible story is not the clear-sighted, black-frocked, civic leader. He is instead a blind man begging for a gift. He falls at Jesus’ feet, “saying, ‘My daughter is dying. Please come and put your hands on her so she will be healed and live’” (Mark 5:23).
You know, there are times in life when everything you have to offer is nothing compared to what you are asking to receive. The situation is starkly simple: Jairus is blind to the future, and Jesus knows the future. So Jairus asks for help. And Jesus, who loves to give new beginnings, goes to give it. He’ll do the same for you. Do you face an uncertain future? Ask Jesus to help you.
