All of us have have blind spots. Our brain fills in the picture so we don’t realize it. But the blind spots in our field of vision are very real. In medical terms, “it is the place in the visual field that corresponds to the lack of light-detecting photoreceptor cells on the optic disc of the retina where the optic nerve passes through the optic disc.”
Jesus often told simple stories so that we might see our spiritual blind spot and understand the important lessons of life. Jesus said, “This is why I speak in parables: though seeing, they do not see; though hearing, they do not hear or understand.” (Matthew 13:13).
