In the Gospel of Mathew, Jesus cures a paralyzed man simply by giving him instructions. In this plain manner, Jesus both heals the man’s infirmity and forgives his sings.

It takes great strength to believe in simple solutions. Sometimes all we need to do is to stop and ask God what to do next.

Dear Jesus, help me to live today well. Grant me the strength to be loved and to love others. May my witness help others know that You love them, too.
