“His disciples asked him, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the works of God might be displayed in him.” John 9:2-3 NIV
This week I had a client tell me the biggest hurdle to overcome was the ‘’many unanswered whys’ we have in life. This client was right, there are many many things we just can’t explain. Religion/spirituality can’t give definitive answers, nor can science, or philosophy.
Jesus seemed to sidestep giving a definitive answer that’d explain why this man was born blind from birth. Instead he focused on the WHAT FOR side of the problem, he drew their attention to what could be accomplished by this man’s condition.
Let us take a page from Jesus and spend less time stuck on the why’s and more time catalyzing the ‘what for’.
If I could give you a hug, hi5, or fist bump from here I definitely would. As long as you don't mind a couple typos here and there, you're MOST welcome to check in, drop a comment here and there, and make yourself at home.
