Considering disability in Weekend Words

How do see the disabled? Do you see them at all? #blindness#Jesus#JohnPiper

Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadows.


John 9:1-5, Contemporary English Version 

As Jesus walked along, he saw a man who had been blind since birth

Jesus’ disciples asked, “Teacher, why was this man born blind? Was it because he or his parents sinned?”

“No, it wasn’t!” Jesus answered. “But because of his blindness, you will see God work a miracle for him. 

As long as it is day, we must do what the one who sent me wants me to do. When night comes, no one can work. 

While I am in the world, I am the light for the world.”
