"Look and you will see!"

When Jesus was coming close to Jericho, a blind man sat begging beside the road.  The man heard the crowd walking by and asked what was happening.  Some people told him that Jesus from Nazareth was passing by.  So the blind man shouted, "Jesus, Son of David, have pity on me!"  The people who were going along with Jesus told the man to be quiet.  But he shouted even louder, "Son of David, have pity on me!"

Jesus stopped and told some people to bring the blind man over to him.  When the blind man was getting near, Jesus asked, "What do you want me to do for you?"

"Lord, I want to see!" he answered.

Jesus replied, "Look and you will see!  Your eyes are healed because of your faith."  Right away the man could see, and he went with Jesus and started thanking God.  When the crowds saw what happened, they praised God.
