Lesson Title: HEALING THE BLIND MAN
Printed Text: John 9:1-17

UNIFYING LESSON PRINCIPLE:
People’s critical personal needs often outweigh the rules and regulations made by other human beings. How do we decide which priorities in life come first? Jesus put the blind man’s need to see before the Jewish rules about Sabbath observance.
