In today’s Gospel reading Jesus cures the son of a court official. Imagine what it would have been like to witness one of Jesus’ miracles. What difference would it have made to your faith in God? Do you think you would have been amazed or do you think you would have been skeptical that there was some other explanation for what had happened? When the official heard that his son had indeed been cured, we are told that everyone in the household believed. We may not see children being cured in this way, but we are surrounded by small miracles every day.
- I will spend a few moments thinking about a miracle of God that I have witnessed recently and give thanks to God for this.
