Luke 18:35-39 As Jesus approached Jericho, a blind beggar was sitting beside the road. When he heard the noise of a crowd going past, he asked what was happening. They told him that Jesus the Nazarene was going by, So he began shouting, "Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!"
"Be quiet!" the people in front yelled at him.
But he only shouted louder, "Son of David, have mercy on me!"
The rest of the story is that Jesus stopped and healed the blind man. But what if the blind man had listen to the crowd in front of him? He would have missed out on his blessing, the blessing of being able to see!
These verse made me wonder, "What blessings have I missed out on because I let someone silence me?" God is working on me... teaching me to be bold!!! He is teaching me that sometimes being sweet is saying what needs to be said, when it come to God. Because sometimes a little salt makes the sweet taste all the more sweeter after baking.
I don't want to ever be silenced to the point that I miss out on one of God's blessings in my life. How about you?
