Luke 17:11–19 “Keeping their distance, they called out, saying, ‘Jesus, have mercy on us!’”
Jesus’ healing of the 10 with leprosy shows us God’s endurance during the most difficult and painful times through to healing on the other side. It is in the actions of the 10 that they are made well – Jesus invites them to go and return to the community so they might be a part of it again. Our own actions day-to-day reflect the role of faith in our lives. Although we might not experience dramatic physical healing, we can step out in faith and allow God to heal relationships or personal wounds that make us unwell.
Something to think about, talk about, or do:
- This week ask God to heal a relationship that is broken.
- Take an action toward healing and do something that will help make your relationship healthy again.
