Lent Reflection – Am I trying to manage how others see me?

Today is the 4th day of Lent, and I’m continuing my series of Lenten reflections. I’m reading through pastor Brian Zahnd’s Lent devotional The Unvarnished Jesus. As a practice of my own, I’ll be posting daily (or near daily) short reflections on the scriptures chosen. Today’s scripture is Mark 10:46-52, the story of Blind Bartimaeus.
