TALK: Consider some of these ideas
Jesus said to him, “Go; your faith has made you well.” Immediately he regained his sight and followed him on the way. (Mark 10:52)
The disciples wanted glory and the received the promise of suffering. Bartimaeus wanted mercy and was healed. Jesus knows what people need, and what the world needs from them.
- Fairness isn’t always treating everyone the same. Think of times when some people need to be treated differently? Should we always get what we ask from God?
- When has suffering touched your life. How did it impact your faith?
PRAY: O God, you know exactly what we need, even when we ourselves do not. Grant us the vision and strength to live as you have taught us as true disciples of Jesus, in whose name we pray. Amen..
BLESS: May our God of healing fill you with hope to continue your journey of faith.
