The people who were with Jesus thought that blind Bartimaeus was disrupting. Come to think of it; these people were His disciples, they've been with Him all through His journey, so they should be in a good position to identify disruption when they see one. Blind Bartimaeus on the other hand, didn't care about the high esteem of these people; instead, he shouted the more, "Jesus, have mercy on me". The summary is that Jesus had to stop to help him.
If you sit in the dark for very long, you'd get used to it. If you doubt me, ask a blind man how he moves around when there's nobody to help him. But the fact that you're used to the dark doesn't mean there is light. And in most cases, when light suddenly shows up, it hurts for a while, and then you begin to adjust to the presence of light. And this is why many unbelievers reject the gospel at first. But after a while, they accept it. Here's my point; everybody may think you're doing the wrong thing, but if you have a true conviction that you're on the right path, then keep pressing.
That's how far we'd go on today's Timely Note. But take these last words; RECEIVE PEOPLE'S OPINION, AND EVEN APPRECIATE THEM FOR IT. BUT DON'T DWELL ON THEM IF YOU REALLY SHOULDN'T. SELF-CONVICTION IS THE KEY TO BREAKTHROUGH. Have a most fruitful week, in Jesus precious name!
And hey, don't forget to "like" it. And if you really like it, please share it!
