And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand.
And they watched him, whether he would heal him on the sabbath day; that they might accuse him.
And he saith unto the man which had the withered hand, Stand forth.
And he saith unto them, Is it lawful to do good on the sabbath days, or to do evil? to save life, or to kill? But they held their peace.
And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he saith unto the man, Stretch forth thine hand. And he stretched it out: and his hand was restored whole as the other.
And the Pharisees went forth, and straightway took counsel with the Herodians against him, how they might destroy him.
But Jesus withdrew himself with his disciples to the sea: and a great multitude from Galilee followed him, and from Judaea,
And from Jerusalem, and from Idumaea, and from beyond Jordan; and they about Tyre and Sidon, a great multitude, when they had heard what great things he did, came unto him.
Many people have lived their lives in such a way that their lives have become like a mirror that reflects on an image looking at them. In the Bible time Jesus Christ was a typical example of such personality, He lived a life that was very reflective on others. That was why He had lots of followers. People abandoned Families, Career, Relations, And their dreams or life pursuit to follow Him became all through His Life time, His life was a reflection of miracles and testimonies, people believed in Him and they were good for it.
As human beings one of our deepest rooted desires in life is to have a meaningful and happy existence. Yes! For one to say Live A Good Life , it could be a good advice given. We all want to feel connected to both ourselves and the others. We want to feel We are part of an important happening and also want to make the difference and be relevant in the affairs of the happenings around. We want to look back at our lives and perhaps what will be attributed to us as our accomplishments. All these supposed to make us feel good and proud of who we are
Do you Know that you’re a unique person, so live your life to the best of your ability so as to be a reflection in the lives of others, reflecting your true value for others to see and be attracted to you. “A huge crowd kept following Him wherever He went, because they saw His miraculous signs as He healed the sick” (John 6:2). NLT
Live each day like it counts and remember its your choice, your best life is unique to you. Don’t compare yourself to others Focus on living your best life and enjoy the glory that comes with your doing good to not only yourself but to others too. Proverbs 11:25 “The generous will prosper, Those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed”.
Be the best version of yourself if you most live your best life, Don’t try to be what other people want you to be. if you know your Bible you will remember that Jesus was once accused of drinking and winning with the sinners…. and He told them that He had not came to break the law rather He came to fulfill it because they saw Him do things differently (Matthew 5:17).
Concentrate and focus on who you are and how to play according to the strength in you. Be proud of what makes you different . Opportunities for joy can be missed through wrong motives towards others , God has a way of using unexpected people to accomplish His purpose and plans in you so be positive and open minded.
“A good man out of the good treasures of his heart brings forth good and the wicked man out of the wicked brings forth what is wicked for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks” (Luke 6:45).
May God grant us the grace to be the best we can be and make us good Christians that will reflect like mirror for others to see and learn. In Jesus name Amen. Thank you for reading, Remain Blessed Amen
