The Pharisees were not known for having teachable spirits. After the blind man was healed by Jesus, he was questioned profusely by these men who were looking for any possible way of accusing Jesus of breaking the religious Law. It was as if the man was sitting under hot interrogation lights with questions flying from all directions. How did Jesus do this? Where did He come from? "I don't know," the man replied. "All I know is that I was blind, and now I see." Finally the man was fed up; he gave the Pharisees a taste of their own medicine: "Never before on the earth has there been a man who could make a blind person see. If he isn't from God, then where did he come from? Because only God can do such a thing." The Pharisees were enraged. How dare this putrid beggar tell them about God? They were unteachable, and because of their unteachable spirits they missed God. Those who don't miss God are the ones who are teachable and who are willing to learn. Which group do you fall into?
