17 Then Ananias went to the house and entered it. Placing his hands on Saul, he said, “Brother Saul, the Lord—Jesus, who appeared to you on the road as you were coming here—has sent me so that you may see again and be filled with the Holy Spirit.” 18 Immediately, something like scales fell from Saul’s eyes, and he could see again. He got up and was baptized, 19 and after taking some food, he regained his strength. Saul spent several days with the disciples in Damascus.
Whoever seems wise to himself must become a fool in order to attain to true wisdom. As Christ is the Sun of Righteousness, we cannot see without him; it is he who opens the eyes of the mind.
We also see Paul’s great desire to learn, because he did not refresh his body with food until his soul had received strength.
