Blindness: Not just of the eyes but rather of our spirituality. So many times, we believe that we understand and know truths. God lets us know that we do not have a small amount of what needs to be understood. There is always more to learn, know and grow in to be closer to Him.
In this chapter, Jesus shows compassion toward a blind man. He sees this as an opportunity for doing our Father's work. Do not blind yourself to those who are more needy than ourselves. Do no blind yourself to opportunities to help another person (more or less fortunate). "We must quickly carry out the tasks assigned us by the one who sent us". These are such stunning and powerful words of our Savior. God has a set task and ability He has placed inside of us. Once we open our eyes to His plans for us, then every aspect of our lives makes sense and brings joy to us and to others.
In verse 41 Jesus states "If you were blind, you wouldn't be guilty. But you remain guilty because you claim you can see." When we accept our blindness, we are innocent to Him. If we claim to know, understand and have wisdom, we lay claim to our own guilt. I have had people ask me "Why can't you see this?" They themselves claim to have much wisdom because of their scholastic achievements or even their philosophical outlooks. They make themselves appear as being of great knowledge. But they are blind to the truth in Jesus Christ.
We must remain humble and admit that we do not have the answers. We must hunger for His knowledge and wisdom.
