Healing two blind men
As Jesus went on from there, two blind men followed him, crying loudly,
“Have mercy on us, Son of David!”
When he entered the house, the blind men came to him;
and Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?”
They said to him, “Yes, Lord.”
Then he touched their eyes and said,
“According to your faith let it be done to you.”
And their eyes were opened.
Then Jesus sternly ordered them, “See that no one knows of this.”
But they went away and spread the news about him throughout that district.
When I read this passage,
not only do I see the compassion of Christ in the miracle he performed,
but his acknowledgement and thus, his praise of their faithfulness.
What do you see? Could you refrain from praising God publicly?
Today in your prayers, offer that praise and thanksgiving to God!
