Proper 25/Ordinary 30 2015 – Mark 10:46-48

Wednesday, October 21, 2015 

Mark 10:46-48 – They came to Jericho. As he and his disciples and a large crowd were leaving Jericho, Bartimaeus son of Timaeus, a blind beggar, was sitting by the roadside.  When he heard that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to shout out and say, “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!”  Many sternly ordered him to be quiet, but he cried out even more loudly, “Son of David, have mercy on me!”

This is a familiar situation in Jesus’ ministry.  Someone cries for help, and the well-meaning disciples try to protect Jesus from being bothered.  But Jesus always chooses to help, always chooses service over self.

Loving God, help us in our efforts to find more effective ways to care for our brothers and sisters.  Amen.
