This morning as I was awakened by a telephone call where someone needed prayerful support, I was instantly reminded of my prayer yesterday. My prayer is always to do good daily and be always willing to turn to God immediately. While I was thinking along these lines, I was led to Matthew 20:30 which reads “Behold, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, ‘Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David.'” This took place while Jesus was on His way to Jerusalem where He was met with betrayal, condemnation and crucifixion, but He stops to heal them.
After reading this, I became so aware that rather than turn people away, He gladly and lovingly received them, no matter what was going on. Shouldn’t I do the same?
