Bible Reading Day 30

Day 30 – Matthew 20:17-34
Good morning!
Our readings in Matthew’s gospel now take a turn toward their climax, as Jesus sets out for Jerusalem and His death. 
It is striking how He remains in control, focused on others, during this hardest season of His ministry. He explains it all to His disciples because they will need to understand what has happened from God’s persepctive. The religious leaders who have opposed Jesus all along are going to finally do away with Him, but He still has time to stop and heal two blind beggars!
The Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many. What a privilege to follow Him!
Have a great day!
