Healing in his Wings

Healing the Blind Man
by Edy Legrand

But for you who fear my name, the Sun of Righteousness will rise with healing in his wings. And you will go free, leaping with joy like calves let out to pasture. (Malachi 4:2 NLT).

If Jesus said, “What do you want me to do for you?” how would you answer? (Serendipity Bible 10th Anniversary Edition, page 1370).

If anyone has read my blogs a bit, the answer to this question must be obvious. I would ask that he heal my sightlessnesses. I would like to see those things lying before me tall as a ten foot fact to which I am oblivious. When I was an undergraduate in college, I went home for a visit. One evening I went down the street into the home of one of my parents' neighbors. I remember holding forth as only a sophomore can on the rectitude of the South’s civil rights record. Not long after that, my eyes were opened and I regretted what I had said. Younger as a teenager at church, I made a joke about mongolism. If this weren’t reprehensible enough, a boy in the group present had a brother with the condition. Much of Jesus’s passion came from his freedom to view clearly the facts. He saw beneath the status quo blindness of those around him and challenged the meanness of society hidden beneath the trappings of rectitude. That is, his perception of truth included everyday factual truth. I would ask Jesus to help me see.
