HAVE PITY ON ME

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, May 28, 2015

wisdom 052815

As Jesus was leaving Jericho with His disciples and a sizable crowd, Bartimaeus, a blind man, the son of Timaeus, sat by the roadside begging.

On hearing that it was Jesus of Nazareth, he began to cry out and say, “Jesus, son of David, HAVE PITY ON ME.”  And many rebuked him, telling him to be silent.

But he kept calling out all the more, “Son of David, HAVE PITY ON ME.”  Jesus stopped and said, “Call him.”  So they called the blind man, saying to him, “Take courage; get up, Jesus is calling you.”  

HE THREW ASIDE HIS CLOAK, SPRANG UP, AND CAME TO JESUS.

Jesus said to him in reply, “WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO DO FOR YOU?”  

The blind man replied to him, “MASTER, I WANT TO SEE.”  

Jesus told him, “GO YOUR WAY; YOUR FAITH HAS SAVED YOU.”

Immediately he received his sight and followed him on the way.

–  From the Gospel of Mark 10: 46-52

Reflections:

*How strong is our faith in Him?

*Have we ever asked for pity from Him?

*If He asks us, “What do you want me to do for you?”, what is our answer?

THE LIGHT OF HIS KINDNESS

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, May 27, 2015:

SHOW US, O LORD, THE LIGHT OF YOUR KINDNESS

Remember not against us the iniquities of the past; may your compassion quickly come to us, for we are brought very low.  Help us, O God our savior, because of the glory of your name; deliver us and pardon our sins for your name’s sake.  

Let the prisoners’ sighing come before you; with your great power free those doomed to death.  Then we, your people and the sheep of your pasture, will give thanks to you forever; through all generations we will declare your praise.

– From Psalms 79: 8,9,11,13

Reflections:

*Do we feel His kindness every single day?

*Do we ask for His mercy and compassion?

*Do we give thanks day in and day out?

He will always be kind,

SIGNS AND WONDERS

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, March 16, 2015:

wisdom 031615e

Jesus returned to Cana in Galilee, where He had made the water wine.  Now there was a royal official whose son was ill in Capernaum.

When he heard that Jesus had arrived in Galilee from Judea, he went to Him and asked Him to come down and heal his son, who was near death.

Jesus said to him, “Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will not believe.”  

The royal official said to him, “Sir, come down before my child dies.”  Jesus said to him, “You may go; your son will live.”

The man believed what Jesus said to him and left.  While the man was on his way back, his slaves met him and told him that his boy would live.

He asked them when he began to recover.  They told him, “The fever left him yesterday, about one in the afternoon.”

The father realized that just at that time Jesus had said to him, “Your son will live,” and he and his whole household came to believe.

-From the Gospel of John 4:43-54

Reflections:

*Why do we continue to seek signs and wonders before we believe?

*Why do we seek Him only when we badly need something?

*Are we ready to believe Him even if we have not seen Him?
