“Simon’s mother-in-law was suffering from a high fever, and they asked Jesus to help her.”
When Jesus healed Simon’s mother-in-law what was her first reaction?
It was quickly to resume her place as a caretaker in Simon’s home. Basically, her number one response was to serve others, as she had always done. That was how she expressed her gratitude to Jesus.
How do we respond when Jesus heals us body and soul? Do we, out of gratitude, reach out to serve others?
As we go through our daily routines, let us make a point to readily serve as our response for all that God has done for us.
Dear God, thank You, for healing my body through medical care and through Your life-giving power. Help me to serve others as a show of gratitude for Your love. Amen.
