When you miss the point, it’s like you’re blind

Morning: Psalms 85, 87; Joshua 3:14 – 4:7; Ephesians 5:1–20
Some people waste time debating whether Jesus actually heals the man born blind; which proves the point of the story.  The story is about spiritual blindness. The disciples think sin caused the man to be blind, but Jesus says he is who he is so that truth can shine in him.  When Jesus heals him, the Pharisees won’t believe he has ever been blind!  They all, blindly, miss the point … Differing abilities are not signs of punishment for wrongdoing; and, when you keep looking for trouble, chances are you won’t know goodness when it’s staring you in the face.
