Bedtime Stories And Prayers By Enid Blyton-The Beggar Who Shouted and Durian

Last week Auntie Claire posted a very tempting post in her blog, titled "Football Fever Versus Durian Fever". Mamarazzi really beh tahan looking at the creamy durian. Lappie all wet from all the drooling. Thus she dragged me to the Pasar Malam and borong a tub of durian home.

Apa lagi, arrived home I also happily went to the kitchen and took my small bowl. Fast fast cekuk a piece of durian before Mamarazzi wallop all.

This one is mine. Don't curi makan mine ah.

But one sad thing hor...we saw there are beggars at the Pasar Malam. There was this old lady beggar holding a baby. Mamarazzi said maybe the baby doesn't belong to the beggar. Seems that there are syndicate that arrange all these "accessories" for the beggars.

Maybe there are no more honest beggar like Bartimaeus anymore.

It was said in Enid Blyton's "The Beggar Who Shouted", that long ago there was a blind beggar name Bartimaeus. He had to beg for a living as he was blind and can't do work.

One day while he was sitting at the roadside begging, he heard the sound of a lot of people rushing by. He was curious and asked.

One of the beggars told him that Jesus of Nazareth is passing by there and they are waiting for him

Bartimaeus was surprised and delighted as he knew that Jesus is a great healer and he hope that Jesus will be able to see him and help him.

Then Jesus came. The crowd forgot about him. Everyone were rushing to see Jesus.

Bartimaeus lifted up his voice and shouted "Jesus, have pity on me!" "Jesus, have mercy on me".

The crowds were angry at Bartimaeus shouting and tried to make him stop. But he would not and shout even louder.

Jesus heard that anxious and desperate voice and stopped. He instructed Bartimaeus to be brought to him.

Then Jesus asked what Bartimaeus wanted and he told Jesus that if only he can see. Jesus healed him.

Guess this teach us that we must doing something also instead of depending on praying.

If Bartimaeus didn't take the initiative to shout out, Jesus might not have noticed him. Ask, and you'll be given...provided that you must take the initiative steps.

Tak kan la nak tunggu Durian Runtuh. Jom makan durian!
