Random Thoughts: Blind Spots



This morning just as I was about to merge into the left lane to turn into Starkbucks, I caught a glimpse of a car approaching from behind me. I corrected just before causing an accident. The car was in my “blind spot.”

Do I have blind spots in other areas of my life? As I’m distracted by the many issues that I deal with every day, is it possible that I’m missing something very important? Do I see other people’s faults better than I see my own? Is it possible that I am “blinded” by my own opinions and don’t consider the opinions of others? Am I guilty of wanting to be judged based on my intentions but then judge others based on their actions? Do I “see the speck in (my) brother’s eye but fail to notice the beam in (my) own eye?”

I guess my only blind spots aren’t those I discover while I’m driving.
