Blind to the Truth

Sundar Singh was a Christian from India who died many years ago. He once told the following story.

“Suppose you are walking down the street and you see a blind man coming toward you. It is your responsibility to move to one side so you won’t run into each other. It is not the blind man’s responsibility. He does not know you are nearby, because he can’t see you. If you and the blind man accidentally bump into each other, you would say, ‘Excuse me.’ Then you would help him on his way. It would not make sense to get angry with the blind man for the accident.

“In the same way, if a person who is blind to the truth persecutes us because we follow Jesus, we must not get angry. We should forgive him. We must love and pray for him. Jesus said, ‘Love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you’ (Matthew 5:44).”
