When we look at people different from us, people from another ethnic heritage, or religion, or a different sort of community, do we assume certain things about them based on old prejudices? Or do we approach each encounter open to what God is ready to show us? When we look at the physical world around us, do we see it like a scientist is taught to see it, a place governed by physical laws alone? Or do we see it as the place where God rules, a place where miracles happen? Do we hear in birdsong a hymn of praise, and see in the sunset a benediction?
- John 9:1-41
