Matthew 20:29-34

How to spend some quality time listening to what Jesus would like to say through the scriptures:

  1. In preparation, acknowledge the Lord’s presence and love for you and settle yourself before Him (in your mind and heart).
  2. Read the day’s text carefully; take your time.
  3. Reflect on what you have been reading with a listening ear – what word, phrase, or sentence speaks to you from the text? [If you don’t have something you use as a journal, click the blue Notes button on this page, and you can write your thoughts and reflections there.]
  4. Now, talk to the LORD about what you hear from this text. What has Jesus stirred in your heart? If you were with Him walking from one Galilean village to another, what would you say to Him about this?

29 And as they went out of Jericho, a great crowd followed him. 30 And behold, there were two blind men sitting by the roadside, and when they heard that Jesus was passing by, they cried out, “Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!” 31 The crowd rebuked them, telling them to be silent, but they cried out all the more, “Lord, have mercy on us, Son of David!” 32 And stopping, Jesus called them and said, “What do you want me to do for you?” 33 They said to him, “Lord, let our eyes be opened.” 34 And Jesus in pity touched their eyes, and immediately they recovered their sight and followed him.
