Eyes to the Blind
Job 29:15
I was eyes to the blind, and feet was I to the lame.


1. As to spiritual things, the blind are peculiarly dependent. In spiritual things all men are dependent. Sometimes blindness is sent in judgment. How many are the books which the blind do not possess. From how many objects of sight the Scripture draws lessons of faith. These must be more difficult to the blind than to others.

2. As to temporal things. So few professions and trades the blind can follow.

II. THE DUTY AND MODE OF BECOMING EYES TO THE BLIND. It is our duty to study the mind of God towards the blind, and to pray, and to endeavour with His help, to be like-minded, according to our opportunity. As to mode, this will apply to individuals. All should maintain the sincerest sympathy, all should be ready to give their practical help; but different individuals may help in different ways.

(John Hambleton, M. A.)
