As Jesus and his disciples were leaving Jericho, a large crowd followed him. Two blind men were sitting by the roadside, and when they heard that Jesus was going by, they shouted, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!” The crowd rebuked them and told them to be quiet, but they shouted all the louder, “Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!” Jesus stopped and called them. “What do you want me to do for you?” he asked. “Lord,” they answered, “we want our sight.” Jesus had compassion on them and touched their eyes. Immediately they received their sight and followed him. Matthew 20:29-34 NIV
The call of these two blind men to Jesus was to have mercy on them. Yet, the crowd rebuked them. When we ask the Lord to have mercy on us, to forgive us, and to lead us in His ways, He is compassionate, loving, and caring.
Jesus asked the blind men what they sought. What do we seek from the Lord? Do we seek material items, good health, or other things for self? Or do we seek for the needs of others? If we seek for ourselves, we should seek for that which comes from God: knowledge of His will, wisdom to discern, and other things that will help us in advancing His kingdom.
Seek after that which pleases the Lord. You shall be blessed abundantly.
