Dear First Presbyterian Church family,
Lesson 7: Jesus Gives Sight
I love the story of Blind Bartimaeus. He cries out to Jesus, “Jesus, son of David, have mercy on me.” Isn’t that the cry of all of our hearts? And then when Jesus restores his sight, he sees the face of Jesus. No wonder I love this story. Maybe you are so exhausted this week that you just need to cry out to Jesus. He is there to hear you, for he neither slumbers nor sleeps.
Love on your kids and thank you again for the privilege of being in your homes!

Optional Additional Activities:
Families are following the life of Jesus to see that he is truly God, exploring stories that encourage the whole family during this time:
- Jesus calming the storm (good reminder of his power over creation)
- Healing the man at the pool, a blind man, a crippled man (don’t we all need to know Jesus our Healer?)
- Jesus bringing Lazarus back to life (Jesus’ care and mercy for his own)
- And the gospel story—Jesus’ resurrection from the dead
