Thursday April 9th, Mark 16: 3 They asked each other, "Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?" But when they looked up, they saw that the stone, which was very large, had been rolled away. Jesus' followers were still not expecting the resurrection.  The disciples were in hiding and the women followers were the ones who came to care for the body.  After all Christ had said and done, they expected the stone to still be there, the tomb to be occupied, death to have won.  Before we get all holier than thou, just remember, we would too.  Many of us still do.  We often shut our eyes and hearts to the wonders God has in store for us. We often shut our eyes and hearts to the hungry and needy.  We often shut our eyes and hearts to those whose opinions differ from our own.  We often shut our eyes and hearts to the children of God who see things different from ourselves.  Pray today that God would help you roll away the stone from your heart, from your own eyes, and open your mind to the possibilities in this world through Christ. Then pray that Christ will help you show those possibilities to others in the way you live your life.  Think back over the day.  In what way did the unexpected bless you?  Thank God for that blessing. Pass it on.
