Day 56: Saturday, May 30

Matthew 20:29-34

As they were leaving Jericho, a large crowd followed them. Two blind men were sitting by the road. When they heard that Jesus was passing by, they shouted, “Have mercy on us, Lord, Son of David!” The crowd scolded them to get them to be quiet. But they shouted even more loudly, “Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!” Jesus stopped, called them, and said, “What do you want me to do for you?” They said to him, “Lord, let our eyes be opened.” Moved with compassion, Jesus touched their eyes. Immediately they received their sight and followed him.

COMMENT & QUESTIONS

This is another story that Matthew gives of Jesus paying attention to people who were outcast and neglected. Why do you think Matthew draws our attention to how Jesus treated these people?

Jesus saw the world in a completely different way. He did not give more time and attention to the rich and important people. In fact, He prioritised the oppressed and the outcast. This is a challenge for all followers of Christ to emulate.


Who are the neglected and outcast people in your life? Who do you think Jesus would be paying special attention to?

Think about people in the community who aren't respected or admired. Think about people who receive very little attention.

PRAYERS
