The every day miracle in a world of selfies

There are so many things I love and hate about the healing of the blind man in John 9.

The biggest thing I love about this passage is that when the miracle is over, Jesus keeps on moving. When others ask the healed man where Jesus is, he doesn’t know.

Jesus just wouldn’t have “cut it” in our selfie world. We have to stop for the photo op and get it on our media pages and “give glory to God.”

Jesus (and coincidentally the disciples in Acts), on the other hand, simply did what he saw the Father doing… did it… and moved on.

John 9 leaves me undone, quite honestly. Healing isn’t a “show.” We’ve made it that. It’s a spectacle. We’ve made ourselves the center of attention.

Every day miracles await, but we may not be paying attention.
