Jesus is traveling with a crowd, teaching as He walks. A blind man sitting by the road hears the passing commotion and asks what is going on. When he learns that Jesus of Nazareth is near, he calls out, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”
Several times the man calls out, even louder after some in the crowd tell him to be quiet. “Son of David, have mercy on me!”
Jesus stopped and ordered the man to be brought to him. When he came near, Jesus asked him, “What do you want me to do for you?”
- Luke 18:40-41 (NIV)
I am that blind man calling out to God.
Encourage me. Strengthen me. Provide for me. Comfort me. Save me. Give me. Help me.
That’s what I want.
What do you think these kids want? What are they crying out for?
Fifty kids in Haiti. All at the same center. All need God’s love. All need God’s mercy.
How about you? What are you calling out to God for?
All the while we cry out, God is calling out to us. Follow me. Be like me. Share my love.
Is it possible that my needs and your needs complement these kids’ needs? That we offer one another an opportunity to give God what He wants?
