Wednesday of Week 22 – 1 Cor 3:1-9; Ps 144; Luke 4:38-44

The simplicity of Jesus’ miracle is astonishing. No complicated ritual or long prayer. Only the full power of the word. Jesus, as the Lord, stood over a sickening woman and ordered the fever to leave her. Lifting her up from a bed of suffering, as He did for many other people healed by him, so as to bring them back to the world. If we seek the Lord in our lives, let’s seek Him as the biblical sage advises, in simplicity of heart. He “is found by those who do not put him to the test, and manifests himself to those who do not distrust him” (Wis 1:2).

Create in me, God, a heart that is pure and humble. Teach me to recognise Your will in the splendour and simplicity of Your word.
