Matthew 8:14-17

14 When Jesus came into Peter’s house, he saw Peter’s mother-in-law lying in bed with a fever. 15 He touched her hand and the fever left her, and she got up and began to wait on him. 16 When evening came, many who were demon-possessed were brought to him, and he drove out the spirits with a word and healed all the sick. 17 This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah: “He took up our infirmities and bore our diseases.”

Pay it forward. That’s simply what Peter’s mother in law did. She was healed. Jesus gave her a gift she couldn’t have bought. The Bible goes on to say that she then got up and cared for Jesus. I’m sure after Jesus left her house she cared for many more. The beauty of Christianity is it being grounded with being a people with a heart to serve. To not be aspiring for title or being the ‘boss’ but to live your life looking after other people, helping other people, serving other people. Quite the contrary to today’s society.

What can I do today to serve? To look after another? To help someone out?

Thank you God that your number one priority is people and seeing the best for people. Help me do the same I pray.
