In today’s story Jesus encounters a man who is going through one of the most difficult trials of life: the sickness and death of a child.
As you read the story note the contrast between the man and his friends and their attitude about what has happened and the attitude of Jesus. They are naturally distraught. What does Jesus say in the narrative?
Jesus raises the girl from the dead and that does not happen today. But is there any sense in which what Jesus says IS true when we lose loved ones today?
How can we be more like Jesus?
