Thursday February 12th Mark 1: 30 Simon's mother-in-law was in bed with a fever, and they told Jesus about her. 31 So he went to her, took her hand and helped her up. The fever left her and she began to wait on them. Jesus mission was to bring wholeness to those he came in contact with. Simon’s mother-in-laws place of honor as the senior woman in the household was to serve the guests who came into her home.  That may not be the same thing we honor in our day and age, but for her, being able to serve her guests meant that her honor was restored.  Her healing was complete and so was the community in her ability to serve.  Jesus also helps us in our mission. We are all called to minister to others by restoring them in the community and in their relationships and in their honor.  Sometimes that restoration means ministering to others and sometimes it means being ministered to. When we build bridges, we have to remember that the traffic goes both ways in a healthy community.
