30th Sunday in Ordinary Time
Often, it is the poor and those who are insignificant in the eyes of the world who are first to acknowledge the works of Christ. Bartimaeus encounters Jesus “on the way.” So does the rich man. He belongs to a higher social status and rejects an invitation from the Lord. The one at the bottom of the social order does not even wait for the invitation. He jumps up and is ready to follow Jesus. He is able to see what the rich man does not.
How is the Lord offering to help you? Place your trust completely in Him.
