What Would YOU Say?

My family still teases me because as a young mom, I tried hard to work around the jokes and odd noises at the dinner table to instill actual conversation. (Crazy, I know.) Story starters like this were common, “if you had a $1000, what would you do with it?”

In Mark 10, Jesus was not asking rhetorical questions. He asked a blind man, “What would you like me to do for you?” If you’re thinking “What a dumb question”, you are a little like me. Of course(!), the blind man would want to see again, right? But, maybe not. Saying aloud what we want or need is often harder than dealing with our difficulties. Or, sometimes, we work so hard to come up with the “right” thing with God that we stall out…and don’t ever ask for anything.

What would you say if Jesus asked you, “What would you like me to do for you?” It takes a measure of faith to say…something. Especially in the face of hardship, pain, loss or confusion. Fortunately, the man answered Jesus, “I would like to see.” Imagine! The first person he saw with his healed eyes, was Jesus. Amazing!

So, in many ways, that’s my prayer today. You, too? “Lord, I would like to see….You.” Amen.
