“And Jesus answered and said unto him, what wilt thou that I should do unto thee? The blind man said unto him, Lord, that I might receive my sight.” (Mark 10:51|KJV)
Sincerely speaking, I thought Jesus Christ acted weird here. Bartimaeus’ blindness was an obvious challenge, yet Jesus asked him what he wanted.
After a careful consideration of this verse, I realized that this question is what many people have failed. It was a privilege for Bartimaeus to have meet Jesus, and for Jesus to have to have granted him an audience. So also has life offered us many opportunities to become great.
Meeting Jesus was a means to an end for Bartimaeus, not the end in itself. When Bartimaeus was faced with this question, he was not confused of the answer to give. He was sure he wanted his sight to be restored. In another words, sight connotes VISION, a sense of direction, and the ability to see beyond present realities!
Bartimaeus was never bothered about how Jesus would make him see. He did not ask for water to wash his eyes, but simply made his desire known.
The problem is that you forget the result you desire to achieve, or you simply have the wrong desire while seeking opportunities like grant, job, contract, marriage, ministry, etc. So, when someone asked you why you need the job, you did not see it as an opportunity to make known your life purpose in line with the job you seek.
Don’t you ever think of the possibility that the HR could understand your sense of purpose and give you a better opportunity?
That is why it is essential for you to know your purpose in life, so that you will not make your means the end.
