Colossians 1: 1-8, Psalm 52, Luke 4: 38-44

Healing within the family

In this passage Luke gives a lovely picture of family relationships. Simon Peter’s mother-in-law is seriously ill and her family ask Jesus to do something for her, which he does by leaning over her and saying the fever had no place in her. The family is our primary community and the healing of relationships there is basic to our Christian commitment. Praying for physical healing is also most appropriate within the family setting and especially when children are little, praying for them is a natural extension of parental love.
