He was not about to let the one person, no doubt the only person who could heal him, pass by without attempting to draw his attention. Others may have felt it a futile attempt, but finding himself sitting by the roadside, the perhaps the once sighted man had nothing to lose and everything to gain. For his effort he was given the thing he wanted the most – vision. Thank you gracious God, for our value is not determined by our shortcomings or other peoples’ prejudgments. Every cry extended towards you does not go unheard and you will not leave us unattended by the roadside.
