The Wise Builder And The Foolish Builder

Hi kids! In the Holy Word the Good King told a story about two men who were building houses. One built his house on a rock and one decided to take the easy way by building his house on the sand. Which house do you think will stand?

By spending time with the Good King in prayer, reading the Bible, and obeying what He says, you will be strong when troubles come. Build your house on Jesus, who is the Rock that can never be moved.

Do you want to read the story of the wise builder and the foolish builder? You can find it in Matthew 7:24-27 in your Bible.

 

“A Blind Man’s Plea”

20160526152651

Today’s Reading: Luke 18:35-43

Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me! Luke 18:38

Some years ago a traveling companion noticed I was straining to see objects at a distance. What he did next was simple but life changing. He took off his glasses and said, “Try these.” When I put his glasses on, surprisingly my blurred vision cleared up. Eventually I went to an optometrist who prescribed glasses to correct my vision problem.

Today’s reading in Luke 18 features a man with no vision at all, and living in total darkness had forced him to beg for a living. News about Jesus, the popular teacher and miracle worker, had reached the blind beggar’s ears. So when Jesus’ travel route took Him by where the blind man was sitting, hope was ignited in his heart. “Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me!” (v. 38) he called. Though without sight physically, the man possessed spiritual insight into Jesus’ true identity and faith in Him to meet his need. Compelled by this faith, “He shouted all the more, ‘Son of David, have mercy on me!” (v. 39). The result? His blindness was banished, and he went from begging for his living to blessing God because he could see (v. 43).

In moments of seasons of darkness, where do you turn? Upon what or to whom do you call? Eyeglass prescriptions help improved vision, but it’s the merciful touch of Jesus, God’s Son, that brings people from spiritual darkness to light.

—Arthur Jackson

Father, open the eyes of my heart to clearly see who Jesus is and what He can do.

The Father’s delight is to give sight to those who ask Him.
