"And the people standing around Jesus were astounded and said: 'He has done everything well. He even makes the deaf to hear.'" Jesus unplugs the man's ears because he knew the healing that can come from having your ears opened to the voices you've shut out. God's love is very big and very wide. Can you hear it?
