The passages today report Jesus’ visit to Simon and Andrew’s home. Simon’s mother-in-law has a fever and Jesus heals her. Others come by and are brought to him, and Jesus heals others and drives out demons.
In each of the three passages Simon’s mo-in-law immediately gets up “and begins to wait on them.” This makes me smile because I can see this woman accepting and believing Jesus’ divinity very readily. She is immediately ready to serve him, as is her role. Some in our modern culture would put her down for this, but I see her behavior as immediate faith and gratitude.
Holy Lord, May I see your blessings and your power all around me. Nothing happens without your will. The “everyday” is divine. Amen
