29As they were leaving Jericho, a large crowd followed him. 30There were two blind men sitting by the roadside. When they heard that Jesus was passing by, they shouted, “Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!” 31The crowd sternly ordered them to be quiet; but they shouted even more loudly, “Have mercy on us, Lord, Son of David!” 32Jesus stood still and called them, saying, “What do you want me to do for you?” 33They said to him, “Lord, let our eyes be opened.” 34Moved with compassion, Jesus touched their eyes. Immediately they regained their sight and followed him. (Matthew 20:29-34, NRSV)
Blind men stood by the road and they cried! They cried show me the way, the way to go home!
We all want to be made whole. And Jesus wants us to live the life He intended for us. He will always be moved with compassion to heal and save.
Would you be one to stand in the way of the blind men, telling them to be quiet or be one to lead them to Jesus?
I have a painting on our wall at home that says life is what happens when we are busy making other plans.
Don’t let plans get in the way of life or Jesus.
