In the first few verses of John 9, Jesus comes across a man born blind … born blind so “that the works of God might be displayed in him” (v. 3). He spits on the ground, forms mud, rubs it on his eyes, and tells him to go wash it off in the Pool of Siloam. After doing so, the man is healed.

I have come to peace with my upbringing, my idyllic childhood in Bucks County and then the train wreck of my late teens and 20s in St. Lawrence County. I feel pity for the people my parents were when they married, for how little they knew and how helpless they felt. I feel pity because they birthed eight little sinners and I was the worst of them all. I feel pity because I know now the gospel brings life to even the darkest corners of our hearts, and there are dark parts of my family’s history that have never had the light of the gospel shined on them fully. I feel pity because I left that home when I was 20 and I never returned.

A favorite post from the archives:
One doesn’t have to look hard to see that many of the “heroes” of the faith were polygamists—Abraham had multiple wives and concubines; Jacob had multiple wives and concubines as well. Even the greatest kings of Israel, David and Solomon, had multiple wives.
So… does that mean it gets a green light—or at the very least, a proceed with caution?
