Touch

Scripture reading

People brought their sick to Him and begged Him to let the sick just touch the edge of His cloak, and all who touched Him were healed.

–Matthew 14:36

Thought of the Day

I recently read about an encounter the late Senator Paul Wellstone from Minnesota had with a man during his last campaign. The Senator greeted the man and asked immediately about the man’s mother, who he knew was not doing well. The man replied that he had just been with her and it was tough. He could not even have a conversation with her. Senator Wellstone gave the man a pat on the arm and said, “You know, touch means so much”. The next day, the man went back to the nursing home where his mom was and took her out to the garden. He wrote later, ‘It was a beautiful day. I just sat there in that garden with my mom, not saying a word, just being there with my arm around her. The Senator was right. That simple touch meant so much”.
Pretty smart guy, huh? By the way, I am talking about Jesus. He knew that touch was important. Jesus knew that a simple touch could heal the hurts. Do you need some healing?

Prayer

Lord, You heal us with Your love. Amen.
