Jesus was an incredible teacher. He told stories often called parables. He used examples from every day life. He made sense out of common sense. He challenged His listeners to hear and respond, not just to listen and walk away.
Jesus asked, “Can one blind person lead another?" Of course not. So do not let those who are blind, who have turned their backs on the Lord lead you. You'll both end up in a ditch.
Students need to learn from their teachers and not think they are better than their teacher. The Disciples had a lot to learn from Jesus. After Jesus' death, resurrection and ascension, the Disciples received the Holy Spirit on Pentecost. They did not replace Jesus. But they "became like" Jesus by teaching people about Him in both the things they said and did.
We need to be careful who we choose to follow in life. Leaders who blindly turn away from God and His word will only lead us down the wrong path and our lives can end up in a ditch. If we let Jesus lead us, we can become more like Him every day.
Pay attention to the person in front of you, the one you are following.
