Reached out and touched him

How often do you just need the touch that someone else cares?

Today, in Mark 1 and Luke 5, the words Jesus reached out and touched him - were written.

Imagine, the love this man with leprosy felt! No one had touched him in a very long time. We don't know how long, but we know he was treated like a leper...yes, the old saying like a leper. Now we know where it comes from...alone, without touch, without notice, without words, without family, without...

Yes, that is how they lived without all the things that matter the most in life.

The words moved with compassion, Jesus reached out and touched him...

How long has it been since you were moved with compassion?

Search your heart and today and respond to this question. If it hasn't been long, good for you...If it has then change it today! Let someone know that indeed you see them and so does God! Be His arms and feet today and let someone know that they matter...they make a difference and touch them! Touch their heart with a word of encouragement, touch their spirit with a smile, and touch their very soul with a hug!

Sweet blessings,

Today, I thought about how brave the man with leprosy was to enter the crowd that was around Jesus. He was an outcast in that society. He probably risked his very life to approach Jesus and then Jesus touched him!
