Excerpt from The Blind Man's Creed, and Other Sermons
It gives an added interest to the event that the blind man was the first confessor in the new kingdom. He was that sort of person that we Should suppose our Lord would have found it particularly pleasant to do something for. He was ready to do what he could for himself, if what he could not do for himself the Lord would do for him. And so when he was told to go and wash, he went without making any words about it. Unlike Naaman, Willingness was one Char acteristic Of him. Sturdiness was another. He spoke his mind, even though it cost him the accusation Of heresy and the verdict of excommunication. His thoughts were distinct, and, therefore, his utterances were so. One thing I know: I was blind; now I see. Crisp thinking makes crisp speaking.
