51 “What do you want me to do for you?” Jesus asked him.
The blind man said, “Rabbi, I want to see.”
52 “Go,” said Jesus, “your faith has healed you.” Immediately he received his sight and followed Jesus along the road.

Small View: Perception – Passing Relationships – Preparation

Observation: In this passing relationship, Jesus perceived those around him and the calling out of Bartimaeus. As Jesus focused his attention and called him toward him, the blind man humbly acknowledged the teacher as Jesus asked what it was that he wanted to be done for him.
Action: Am I present and perceiving the Persons of Peace that the Holy Spirit is preparing in advance for “kingdom connections” that are not a part of my current schedule? How many times each day do I miss the opportunities God is putting in my path? Times to simply ask “what is it that you want me to do for you?” Lord God, may my eyes see with your perception and perspective today.
