Now as Jesus passed by, He saw a man who was blind from birth. […] He spat on the ground and made clay with the saliva; and He anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay.
And He said to him, “Go, wash in the pool of Siloam” (which is translated, Sent). So he went and washed, and came back seeing. John 9:1, 6-7
It is easy to help a humble person because he does not question or complain, he just obeys. Imagine this blind man’s situation. He comes to Jesus and asks to see; Jesus spits on the ground, makes clay and rubs it over the blind man’s eyes.
Let’s imagine this scene through the eyes of a proud person:
1º- Rubbing spit over the eyes of someone who cannot see is a total lack of hygiene. He is only doing this because the man cannot see!
2º- It’s so wrong of Him to send the blind man that far to wash his eyes when He could heal him right here!
3º- The man is already blind, and He’s putting clay over his eyes, that’s just evil!
As you can see, it’s very difficult to help a proud person. Though a proud person never thinks they’re proud, – and will even go so far as to say, “I’m just giving my opinion.”
However, it is very easy to help and honor a humble person!
The blind man did not question, he did not complain, he did not ask someone to help take him to the tank, and he did not ask what Jesus put over his eyes. This is, he simply obeyed and was healed.
The humble will inherit the earth – this is what our Lord Jesus said.
Be humble, obey, persevere and you will see the Glory of God in your life.
