Whenever people see a new baby for the first time, they will see a particular physical feature that strongly resembles one of the parents. For example, they might say, “he/she has his/her father’s eyes.”
Yesterday I saw this “has-his-father’s-eyes” idiom on a billboard in San Jose; and immediately in my mind’s eye, I thought, “What if “having your father’s eyes” meant that you “see things just like your father does?”
Wouldn’t it be great if, after we were born again, people would say to us, “You have your Father’s eyes?”
Jesus must have had His Father’s eyes, which would explain why he caught the eye of people wherever he went, especially people who sought healing for various afflictions, including blindness. For them, Jesus would have been a sight for sore eyes! I think there is much more to this than meets the eye!
