Receiving Healing with Gratitude
Today I read about the Jesus calling the fishermen to become His disciples, His preaching in His village, the healing of a ruler's daughter, Jesus commanding the fever to leave Simon's MIL, and His preaching to the multitudes. I found the story about Jesus healing Simon's wife's mother particularly moving. She had just been sick, but after Jesus heals her, she is so well that she is able to serve lunch to all those men! Now that's what I call fully healed! Seriously, her healing was so thorough, and she showed her appreciation not just by saying thank you and doing what she felt like, but by serving Jesus, her son-in-law, and all of the friends they brought in with them! Now that's a woman I'd like to emulate!
