Penelope Potter Ss.T

BLINDMAN'S BLUFF

5For this they willingly are ignorant (2Peter 3:).


"Good morning children."

"GOOD MORNING MISS POTTER!"

"Is everyone ready to begin their Sunday School lesson for today?"

"YES, MISS POTTER!"

"Very good. Then we will begin. Today's lesson is about seeing the Words of Jesus. Tommy, would you read what it says in John 9:40 and 41 please? It's there in your workbook."

"Ok Miss Potter, but I don't read so good. It says: 'And some of the Pharisees that were with him heard these words, and said to him, Are we blind too? Jesus said to them, If you were blind, you wouldn't have any sin: but now you say, We see; so your sin stays with you'."

"Thank you Tommy. Can anyone tell me what Jesus meant when He told the Pharisees they couldn't see because they think they see?"

"I think I know Miss Potter. One time my friend and me played blindman's bluffer and I thought I could see real good with that thing over my eyes. But I falled over a chair and I saw I couldn't see too good like I thought I could."

"And what did you learn from that experience Bobby?"

"I learned not to run with my eyes closed. That's what I learned Miss Potter."

"When you had the blindfold on, did you think you could see your friend?"

"Sometimes I thought I could see him Miss Potter. Kind of like a picture in my head. But it wasn't real because when I tried to catch it, it runned away."

"Miss Potter? Sometimes I like to play in the dark and I make believe I'm in a giant world that's all dark-like and nothing can see me. I play like there's dragons and knights and things that I'm king over. Sometimes I play with my brother and I let him be a slave or something."

"Miss Potter? Is it like a dream kind of? Sometimes I dream things that aren't real, but when I wake up I think they really are real and I can't remember if what I dreamed is real or if what is real is real. Is that what Jesus meant do you think?"

"Yes Milly, I believe that is a good way to describe what Jesus meant. Sometimes we imagine something to be true when it is in fact a fantasy. And because we believe so strongly that the false is real we won't listen to what is real."

"Miss Potter? My best friend, well, she used to be my friend anyway, she thought I did something to her that I didn't do. And she was mad at me because of what she thought I done, but that I didn't do. She wouldn't believe me that I didn't do what she thinked I did, and she wouldn't be my friend anymore. Is that kind of like what those fairy people were doing with Jesus?"

"Yes Sally, that is what I believe the Pharisees were doing. They had a picture of their expected Messiah and what was God's truth so firmly in their mind that they refused to see that they were wrong, even though Jesus did so many wonderful things to prove who He was. Yes Teddy, you have something to add?"

"No Miss Potter, I don't add too good. But I betcha if those blind guys opened their eyes they could see what Jesus was talking about and they'd be Christians like us kids. Don't you think so Miss Potter?"



37But though he had done so many miracles before them, yet they believed not on him: (John 12:)
