Blind Man Healed
One important reminder I see in what I read today is that bad things don't happen because someone deserves it, or as a punishment of some kind, but so that the power of Jesus can be seen by all. I was also struck by the compassion Jesus showed for the man who was once blind even after healing him. This man was kicked out of the synagogue for suggesting that Jesus must be of God, because sinners couldn't work the miracles he did. Jesus then revealed himself to be the Messiah to the man, and he worshipped Jesus. How wonderful and loving of Jesus to comfort that man and let him know that he was not rejected from the synagogue in vain!
