Daily D – Matthew 20:32-34
Matthew 20:32-34 Jesus stopped and called them. “What do you want me to do for you?” he asked. “Lord,” they answered, “we want our sight.” Jesus had compassion on them and touched their eyes. Immediately they received their sight and followed him. (NIV)
When we see Jesus for who he really is, when we experience his life-giving touch, we joyfully follow wherever he leads.
On this occasion, his way led to Jerusalem, to the Triumphal Entry, to the cleansing of the temple, to the cursing of the fig tree, to the miracles and praises and teaching in the temple, to the anger of the authorities, to the washing of his disciples’ feet, to the last supper, to the Garden of Gethsemane, to the trials, to the crucifixion, and to the grave.
It also led to the empty tomb, the road to Emmaus, to the upper room, to the Sea of Galilee, to the Mount of Olives, and to a promise that he will return just as those there that day saw him leave.
- What’s your best next step with Jesus?
- Where do his story and yours intersect?
- Where will you be on that day of days?
Follow Jesus wherever he leads. You will never be bored. You will never see anything the same way again. You will begin to see with new perspective, new expectations, and new opportunities to bring a little more heaven on earth.
What do you see?
I will ask God to give me sight to see what he sees.
Our Father, give me eyes to see what you see. Give me ears to hear what you say. Give me feet to go where you want me to go. Give me hands to serve those who need your touch. Give me thoughts worth thinking and words worth hearing. Show me the way I should go. Amen.

Deuteronomy 8:12-18 When you eat and are full, and build beautiful houses to live in, and your herds and flocks grow large, and your silver and gold multiply, and everything else you have increases, be careful that your heart doesn’t become proud and you forget the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the place of slavery. He led you through the great and terrible wilderness with its poisonous snakes and scorpions, a thirsty land where there was no water. He brought water out of the flint rock for you. He fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your ancestors had not known, in order to humble and test you, so that in the end he might cause you to prosper. You may say to yourself, ‘My power and my own ability have gained this wealth for me,’ but remember that the Lord your God gives you the power to gain wealth, in order to confirm his covenant he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.
Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.“
Deuteronomy 1:2, 3 It is an eleven-day journey from Horeb to Kadesh-barnea by way of Mount Seir. In the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first of the month, Moses told the Israelites everything the Lord had commanded him to say to them.
