Matthew 20:30-34

20:30 And, behold, two blind men sitting by the way side, when they heard that Jesus passed by, cried out, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David.
20:31 And the multitude rebuked them, because they should hold their peace: but they cried the more, saying, Have mercy on us, O Lord, thou son of David.
20:32 And Jesus stood still, and called them, and said, What will ye that I shall do unto you?
20:33 They say unto him, Lord, that our eyes may be opened.
20:34 So Jesus had compassion on them, and touched their eyes: and immediately their eyes received sight, and they followed him.

Once upon a time there was a domestic servant who crying in front of her employer. He pleaded with the compassionate employers to lend money to pay the rental house. The employer remains the a firm stance and think that this is a lesson for the maid to not wasting money again. But the maid kept pleaded with loud shouting and said "Sir
have mercy on us! if you do not lend money it is me and my children will be sleeping under a bridge!! "

The employer was stunned. He can not bear to let the maid was to sleep under bridges. So finally The employer was not only to lend but also gives money to him.

Jesus said "What will ye that I shall do unto you?" when He heard two blind men cried with said: "Lord, Son of David, have mercy on us!"
Of course this is not a normal cry. It is a tremendous shout that made Jesus
said so.

At the age of the kingdom, a slave will treated in accordance with the will of his master. Slaves not human "life" but people "die" which has purchased by a master. the word "mercy on me" was the right word for a slave or assistants. Because they really live from a mercy from the master. An example, if the master does not give a food for eat then the slave maybe wii be say "mercy on me my master and give me a food!

2 blind men who sat on the edge of the road is clearly have a standard life lower than a slave. they are blind, sitting on the sidewalk and no one else who care for them. They had a habit to ask for mercy from the people who passed by. They were regarded as people who are cursed by the surrounding community. Certainly an exciting surprise for them when he heard that Jesus was passing in front of them. Jesus
whose names are spread in the country as the Messiah
which can cast out demons and heal all the ill. and it is a good news for them which eventually they has healed by His mercy.

One of the interesting things is the word of Jesus which stated that he would serve the 2 blind man.

"What will ye that I shall do unto you?"

these words is the same with the words of the king to his wife as "part
or the entire contents of this palace is yours "

or a king to his subordinates as "I'll grant all your wishes "

and this proves that Jesus came into the world not only heal the
sick or save us from death. But also leaving the entire contents of the kingdom of heaven to us as man who loved

Jesus saw the longing and hearts of two blind that. Two of the blind man to admit that Jesus is Lord and King (son of David). Two of the blind really
acted as a servant or slave in the presence Jesus. As a slave in the presence of God they did not shrink -reluctant to say and shout "God, Son of David,
have mercy! "Even the people around him bothered. As a slave they want to
humility to ask the employer to name of Jesus Christ to provide "food" healing for them.

On this day let us think! how deep our attitude as a slave in front of the Lord Jesus.

Would you yell pleading with heart scream most of us to recognize the weakness to Jesus Christ? Would our lives be treated at will of our Lord Jesus Christ? so this will create an expectation for us that God says
"What do you want that I do for you?"


Jesus saved my life
Jesus save me
