Today’s Readings: Lev 25:47‐27:13, Mark 10:32‐52, Ps 45:1‐17, Prov 10:22
Mark 10:48 And many rebuked him, telling him to be silent. But he cried out all the more, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”
As I was reading this morning, I was reminded through this story to not let others keep me from approaching Christ. The people around the blind man “rebuked” him for approaching Jesus the way that he did. However, the blind man continued to cry out to Jesus. “Son of David, have mercy on me!”
Apply – I want to live a life that aggressively pursues the only one that can meet my needs. I do not want the response of those around me to keep me from pursuing Christ whole heartedly. I want to encourage others to pursue Christ aggressively.
How does the response of others affect the way you cry out to Christ?
