Reaching for the Tassel – Good News for February 8

8 02 2010

Mark 6:53-56

After making the crossing to the other side of the sea, Jesus and his disciples came to land at Gennesaret and tied up there. As they were leaving the boat, people immediately recognized him. They scurried about the surrounding country and began to bring in the sick on mats to wherever they heard he was. Whatever villages or towns or countryside he entered, they laid the sick in the marketplaces and begged him that they might touch only the tassel on his cloak; and as many as touched it were healed.

The Daily Path: In the Good News we often learn about how the sick or those in need of healing will reach out to touch Jesus’ cloak. These people had enough faith to believe this simple action was all they needed.

After reading Mark’s account of this particular episode in the life of Jesus, I started to reflect on my own quest for healing. What are the ways I have reached out to touch Jesus cloak? Reading Scripture on a daily has become a primary tassel in my life. I can’t begin to tell you what a difference this “reach” has made.
