Jairus

Hi, I’m Rosie Boom. The story of Jairus and his dying daughter has often touched me. At Jairus’s request, Jesus starts off with him to heal his daughter but on the way he stops to heal the woman with the issue of blood. I’ve often wondered how Jairus must have felt, knowing every minute counted. And then his worst fears come true. A servant arrives with the message “Your daughter has died.” Imagine the grief Jairus must have felt! But Jesus tells him, “Don’t be afraid any longer, only believe.” The story has a wonderful outcome. The woman is healed and the little girl raised from the dead.

What is our reaction, when, despite our own urgent need, the Lord ministers to someone else first? Do we rejoice for them, or are we only concerned for ourselves? Let’s remember that God wants to minister to both!
