Wherever He went, village or town or country crossroads, they brought their sick to the marketplace and begged Him to let them touch the edge of His coat—that’s all. And whoever touched Him became well. – Mark 6:56
The Master’s power was free for the taking – and so they took. They were blessed, but were they grateful? Throughout the scripture, we are told of many that were healed, but few who thanked Him. His touch may have been free, but we know that it didn’t come cheap.
I pray that I never under value our relationship, my Savior and friend. Forgive me when I have neglected to say “thank you” for Your hand on my life.
