Servig the Word: 16th November


Luke 18, 35-43:
“As Jesus approached Jericho, there was a blind man sitting by the roadside begging for alms… He cried out, ‘Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me! When he came near, Jesus asked him, “What do you want me to do for you? He said, “Lord, let me see again! Jesus replied, “Recover your sight, your faith has healed you. Immediately he regained his sight and followed him, glorifying God.”

How often can each of us be that poor blind man who stands by the side of the road begging for alms! The blind man in the Gospel cries out aloud to Jesus even though they want to stop him.
While darkness reigned in his eyes, the light of faith shone in his heart. And this light ends up smothering the darkness and comes to illuminate the eyes too.
In the midst of darkness, need and helplessness, cry out loudly to Jesus too.
He is the light that shines in the darkness and illuminates every person who comes into this world.
Darkness can never overcome his light.
And do not cry out just so that it may enlighten your own eyes and your own heart.
Shout loudly so that it also illuminates so many dark situations in which so many people in our world live.
You, who receive the light of Christ, be light for the world too! Good day.
