Wednesday: April 2nd, John 9:  1 As he went along, he saw a man blind from birth. 2 His disciples asked him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?" For some there just has to be a cause and effect reason.  Otherwise they have to accept the idea that they too, could be blind someday if they aren’t already.  If there is a cause and effect reason, then I am safe, or at least have the illusion of being in control.  Sometimes the illusion of being in control feels safer than faith.  How often do we practice external judgment as a substitute for internal faith instead of an internal judgment and an external faith?  But then of course, we would never judge others like that unless they are a convicted criminal, or a drug dealer, or a drug user, or an Islamic terrorists, or an unwed mother, or someone who complains too much, or is overweight,  or, or, or, or, or, or……………………………………..  all an attempt to keep reality at bay and us in control.  God offers a different approach.  No matter what befalls us in life, be it good or ill in the eyes of the world, we are never alone.  God is always with us. Instead of right or wrong, God offers a relationship.
