"Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?" What do you think lies behind the disciple's question? Curiosity? Guilt-Tripping? A trap? Compassion? Mindless chatter? When you hear about another person's misfortune, do you react like the disciples of Jesus? Why?
What does Jesus answer reveal about how he views the man's suffering?
All of us have things in our past (or our family's pasts) that we aren't proud of. How do these "sins of the past" affect you today? How do you think about them and talk about them?
Jesus takes spit and mud and rubs it on the man's eyes, he washes and can see. Have your eyes (and the eyes of your heart and spirit) been touched by Jesus and healed? What do you see--in your past, your present, your perceived future--that needs to be touched by Jesus and healed?
All of us in one way or another have the story "I once was blind but now I see." Who needs to hear that story in your sphere of influence this week?
