How Would You Answer?

And Jesus said to him, “What do you want me to do for you?” 

And the blind man said to him, “Rabbi, let me recover my sight.”

Mark 10:51

I recently listened to Emily P. Freeman’s podcast The Next Right Thing and at the end of one of her episodes, she describes Jesus as a great question-asker, a coach, who often delighted in drawing out the deepest desires from those He met.

Jesus loved to ask, “What do you want me to do for you?” Not in the exasperated tone I use with my three-year-old at the end of the day, but in a curious, inviting tone with love in his eyes.

He asks, not so he can know (because as fully God, he already knows), but so YOU can know.

“What do you want me to do for you?” He asks this still today. In your quiet time with Him, if you’re able to still your mind long enough I believe you’ll hear him asking this to you…”Darling one, what do you want me to do for you?”

What is your response today?
