In John 9:1ff we are told the story of Jesus healing a man born from birth. Conventional religious belief at the time was “somebody sinned”.
In many ways we are born blind also in that we too see the world in a quid pro quo type of fairness and justice. Good comes to the good and evil to those who sin. Jesus calls that “blindness” and seeks to shed some light on the subject of the imperfections of life which, like a flaw in the pattern of a Persian Rug, do not devalue it, but make it more precious…one of a kind.
