that Jesus spit in the dirt and rubbed it on his eyes and then told him to go take a bath. The first man, of course, knows what he experienced and gets defensive while the second man firmly holds that Jesus doesn't work that way and his story must be wrong. Then the two separate and form different congregations of people who believe their respective stories and judge that the others did not really encounter Jesus.
I have more thoughts on this, but I think this is a good place to stop and chew... God is so creative and it seems like He keeps bringing this subject up and showing me things from new angles. I don't know why exactly He's decided to shower us with so many blessings lately, but He has - it's hard to explain, but that's just been very clear - and I don't want to squander it... If you think about it and you have a second I would really appreciate your prayers that I use this time wisely and glean what God wants me to from this period.
