“Next, they took the man who had been born blind, to the Pharisees . . . The Pharisees, in turn began to inquire how he had recovered his sight. He told them, ‘He put mud on my eyes. I washed it off, and now I can see.’ This prompted some of the Pharisees to assert, ‘This man cannot be from God because he does not keep the Sabbath.’ Others objected, ‘If a man is a sinner, how can he perform signs like these?’ They were sharply divided over him. Then they addressed the blind man again: ‘Since it was your eyes he opened, what do you have to say about him?’ ‘He is a prophet,’ he replied.”
How does this part of the encounter sit with you?
Allow that awareness to sink into the core of your being.
Become ever more aware of Jesus’ goodness to you and to the blind man; live in light of that goodness today.
Heritage word—“Let us pray, let us pray more and more that the kingdom of God may spread everywhere in the hearts of people.”
