  • In Mark 10:46-52, we have a blind beggar, Bartimaeus, who in his inadequacy and weakness, understood his need for Jesus and yells out to Him “Son of David have mercy on me.”  And the beauty of this account is that Jesus not only heals him of his blindness, but through this amazing miracle demonstrates to us that He is able to fulfill every promise He has made to us


  • The greatest journey of the human heart is to lose a heart of selfishness and gain a heart to serve.  When Paul in Acts 20:35 challenges us with the words of Jesus, “it is more blessed to give than receive,” he was reminding us that God’s intention for each of us that we would take on a lifestyle of giving and loving, rather than always seeking our own benefit.


  • The world is full of stories of men and women who have embraced something that they thought was of great value, only to be disappointed in the end.  We all know stories of some, who after a life time of work, learn how lonely and empty their lives are after retirement.  Why does it take some of us a life time to see how the things that capture us today have no value tomorrow?
