We are humans, with body-soud-spirit. We can only do as much. You cannot decide to sit on the middle of the road where you live even if you built the haighway. You will be held on a 72-hour lock pending a court decision on what to do with you. See? We have limits but we can work within those limits to be the best that we can be. We can be happy, we can feel rewarded. We can do it.
Jesus of Nazareth passeth by – Persistence of faith against obstacles
10:47 … “And when he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth.” He first heard the tramping and the voices of the great throng pressing forward in the narrow streets, and then he inquired what it all meant (Luke), and they told him that Jesus of Nazareth was passing by.
He knew about Jesus, and His wonderful cures. Other blind men had received sight, others in trouble had been helped. The Son of David represented his only hope. Imagine the possible situation: a shrill cry rises above the noise and bustle of the crowd. Again and again the earnest, “Son of David, have mercy upon me!” interrupts people. The eager, surging crowd, desiring only to press onwards, with the tyranny of mob rule, and the impatience of selfishness, try to stop the importunate man. Shall a poor old blind beggar obstruct this crowd of eager men? God will hear you even if you do not see Him!
