Is there a doctor in the house?

“Healthy people don’t need a doctor – sick people do.” Then he added, “Now go and learn the meaning of this scripture, ‘I want you to show mercy, not offer sacrifices.” Matt 9:12b-13

It’s as unreasonable to expect people who have not accepted the truths God to live by them as it is to expect someone with bronchitis to run a marathon. Christ’s prescription for spiritual health always seemed to start with compassion, honesty, integrity,  and meeting basic needs. He worked on the care and feeding of the healthy soul with people who were well enough to run.

Lord, contribute to the healing and health of the souls around me.
