And Jesus said to him, "Recover your sight; your faith has made you well."
And immediately he recovered his sight and followed him, glorifying God.
And all the people, when they saw it, gave praise to God.
Jesus gave sight to a blind man.
The blind man rejoiced.
But it didn’t stop there. Much more happened.
The crowd, also once blind but now seeing, also praised God. The miracle had a ripple effect.
When Jesus heals a soul, he doesn’t stop with one. Those who see the miracle also receive a measure of healing. Of hope. Of faith. They, too, are enlightened. And rejoice. And would do well to glorify God.
If you are that delivered person—the one recovering sight—give God the glory for it.
And if you’re not that person, yet, or right now, look around you. You’ll see someone who is. Be amazed. Have faith. Give praise.
When God is glorified, the whole world becomes a brighter place. For all of us.
Be a ripple.
