Now Matthew says – two blind men followed him.
So far Matthew has introduced us to many people for whom Jesus seems to be the last option. What about Jesus is so attractive to us when we are desperate, down and out?
Each in our own way knows the answer...
Imagine the determination required for these two blind buddies to follow along after Jesus. Somehow they kept up with Him and finally came into the house where He was.
Forgive me for the obvious – None of us has 20/20 vision when it comes to following Jesus either. We grope along, run into things, rely on our buddies, and ask for a lot of directions.
We forge on, because in the end, Jesus is our last option too! And just like the blind men, we sometimes cry out - Have mercy on us, Son of David!
And who is the first person they see when they receive the gift of 20/20 vision?
A day like that is coming for everyone who follows after this Teacher!
