Mr 8:24 I see men as trees, walking. Certain moving forms about him, but without the power of discerning their shape or magnitude; trees he should have accounted them from their heights, but men from their motion.

    Jesus has appointed time to heal us and bless us. It doesnt matter if two times he heal the two eyes of a man there is a purpose. He want the man to go out to the town and spread the good news that he was healed by Jesus. Jesus wants us to receive his words for his words has life. When we chose to follow Jesus we must also obey his words we must do what he says just what he says to the blind man

    Compassion for people in need is a lesson here in Mark 8.
    V. 36 "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his soul?"
