John 9:1-2 As he walked along, he saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?”
Jesus assures the disciples that no one is at fault in this case. Of course the blindness that the disciples speak of is a physical one but I believe our reality is that we are all born spiritually blind but only in that the soul within us, which yearns to be awakened, has yet to be shaken up by an experience of grace (something we receive that we did not earn) and mercy (something we deserve but did not receive). Don’t be deceived, no physical birth is ever at fault. So let’s begin to work and pray for one another that God’s grace and mercy will manifest through each of us and for each of us. Then one day we will all see perfectly. Amen.
