I recently came across a video called Describing Colors To Blind People. It made me think about my childhood and how I used to pretend that I was blind by closing my eyes to “see” if I could find my way around. I never tried it for very long and always bumped into something.
But — howÂ wouldÂ you describe a color to a blind person? This video was made by a man whose blind. It’s an interesting video.

The video also reminded me of a story in the Bible …
“They came to Bethsaida,Â and some people brought a blind manÂ and begged Jesus to touch him.Â He took the blind man by the hand and led him outside the village. When he had spitÂ on the manâ€™s eyes and put his hands onÂ him, Jesus asked,Â â€œDo you see anything?â€
He looked up and said, â€œI see people; they look like trees walking around.â€
Once more Jesus put his hands on the manâ€™s eyes. Then his eyes were opened, his sight was restored, and he saw everything clearly.Â Jesus sent him home, saying,â€œDonâ€™t even go intoÂ the village.â€ Luke 8:22-26
I look forward to the day when both physical and spiritual blindness are lifted from our eyes.
