Chapter-a-Day Mark 5

SimpleShe had heard about Jesus, so she came up behind him through the crowd and touched his robe. For she thought to herself, “If I can just touch his robe, I will be healed.” Mark 5:27-28 (NLT)

It is sometimes amazing to me how simple and small an act of faith can be. The simple touch of the robe, the act of forgiving someone, the simple muttered prayer, the random act of kindness, the simple decision to turn away from that which will be bad for me, or the simple step forward in the right direction. I sometimes make things out in my mind to be much bigger, harder, and more complex than they really are. In doing so, I paralyze myself or justify procrastinating the very simple act of faith I should take.

Today, I’m determined to be mindful of recognizing, and faithful in carrying out simple acts of faith.

One thought on “Chapter-a-Day Mark 5”

  1. 17 And the crowd began pleading with Jesus to go away and leave them alone.
    Jesus shook things up. He didn’t come to agree with everyone and pat people on the back to make them feel good about themselves. He came to make people feel uncomfortable and stretch them. So much so, that they asked him to leave their presence. Wow. How am I living…like Jesus?
