Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of Jesus, met his fate as he approached Damascus. “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?”
You’ve heard the story: Suddenly Saul’s eyes were covered with scales and he was blinded for three days. During this time, he realized his utter dependence on others; realized his helplessness. It became a moment of conversion.
God calls to us in our faithlessness and in our blindness. Let us not assume it is not God calling. Let us, in faith, recognize the call so that the scales might fall from our eyes and that we might see where the Lord has need of us.
