life restored

Thursday July 2nd, Mark 5: 41 He took her by the hand and said to her, "Talitha koum!" (which means, "Little girl, I say to you, get up!" ). 42 Immediately the girl stood up and walked around (she was twelve years old). At this they were completely astonished. 43 He gave strict orders not to let anyone know about this, and told them to give her something to eat. Life is restored, but Jesus was more than miracles, he was also mercy. Don’t say anything about the healing was his request. To tell would set the gossip mills on fire, did you hear what happened, he raise one, maybe two or three from the dead. Imagine what he could do for old uncle George. Jesus would cease to be the messiah and his ministry would be remembered as a miracle worker only. A few lives would be changed, society however, the source of most ills, would remain unchanged. For the sake of mercy, he was willing to put his ministry in jeopardy. Perhaps we too are called to put our plans in jeopardy for the sake of showing mercy.
