Treasure (Physical Health) Matthew 8: 1-4, 16-17

Regarding healing miracles, I confess I simply do not know. My life in a healing profession relied on scientific evidence, but I cannot explain why some healthy young persons die suddenly and tragically while other frail, chronically ill ones survive what seems like forever. There is so much about healing that science cannot explain. If I could have solved this riddle, I would have been a really, great physician.

Clearly, Jesus did not go looking for sick people to heal; they sought him, and he was clear that it was their faith that cured them. I believe that everyone needs hope, whether it be for an effective treatment or for a miracle, and we must not take that away from anyone.

Prayer: Dear God, give us hope for healing and faith that it can happen, even when it is taking way longer than we expected. Amen
