Luke 6:39 says “He also told them a parable: “Can the blind guide the blind? Won’t they both fall into a pit?”
As I was doing my studying one night, I came across this scripture, and it made me think about how vital it is for one’s destiny to have people around them that can lead them and guide them in the right direction.
I have been successful in life because I have had a great support team. I have had people around me to help lead me and guide me down the right path, or get me back on track.
Think about it, if you met someone who had a blindfold on, and told you, “come with me, let me guide you across this busy street.” Would you take their hand and believe them to help you cross the street? Of course not! How could they help you cross a busy street if they can’t even see the traffic that is coming? How would they be able to guide you into safety? Or help guide you from danger? They absolutely cannot!
Sometimes we tend to hold on to people who cannot lead us because it does something for our own self-esteem. It lifts us up that someone needs us to guide them. Now, there is nothing wrong with helping people, but when you do it with the wrong motives and bad intentions that is when it becomes poison to our bodies.
Scripture says it, “won’t they both fall into a pit?”
When there is no clear direction and when there is blindness, this is an equation for disaster.
Get around people who will guide you into the light. Who will guide you to the future. Who will guide you to purpose.
There is nothing more disheartening than being around someone who cannot grow into their full potential because they are blinded in the life they are living and have no direction for the future.
God created us for a greater purpose. He created us to make a difference in this Earth. He created us for greatness.
Re-evaluate those around you, and ask yourself can they lead you to greatness and all God has called you to be?
