The Blind Boy?s Answer

Matthew 11:26  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 5
An atheist visiting a home for blind children noticed a boy reading aloud from a Braille Bible.
"Why should you give time to God who caused you to be born blind?" said the atheist to the lad. "What has God done for you?"
The boy lifted his sightless eyes to the speaker and quietly replied in the words of the Lord Jesus: "Even so, Father; for so it seemed good in Thy sight." Matt. 11:2626Even so, Father: for so it seemed good in thy sight. (Matthew 11:26).
The blind boy, like the man born blind in John chapter 9, had learned the preciousness of the One who could bring sight to the poor dark hearts of those who believe in Him.
