Matthew 20:32 "What Do You Want Me to Do For You?" (January 31)
Didn't we just have this conversation in Capernaum---Who is the greatest? Did the two disciple sons go home and tell their Zebedee mom who became involved in this Jericho conversation? And are these verses written for every person in leadership? For pastors and speakers? Matthew 20: 26-28 "But whoever would be great among you must be your servant, and whoever would be first among you must be your slave, even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." The other 10 disciples were idignant over the Zebedee display. And along comes two blind men crying out loud for mercy...and Jesus asks in 20:32 - "What do you want me to do for you?" Jesus knew, didn't He? He could see their blindness. He knew their thoughts. In pity, Jesus touched their eyes. What parts of me are crying out this day for greatness, for His Touch. In pity, may He touch you deeply so that you may see with the eyes of your heart.
