Deaf-Blind Ref

"I'm blind; I'm deaf; I want to ref."

A sandwich board that isn't unusual in the sports community but is also incredibly derogatory. I've not talked to my blind or deaf friend about this, but I would venture to guess it could be offensive to them as well.

Yet, it is reality. No, I'm not saying refs are deaf-blind, although sometimes that appears to be the case. Rather, we're the ones who are blind and deaf and want to be the ref. We want to be in control of our game called life.

We're blind to God's ways.
We're deaf when He tell us His plan.
And we want control.

What is wrong with this picture?

Stop trying to control a game you are not qualified to control. I need to work on this, too.
