2Kings 5:1-15, Ps. 42, Luke 4:24-30

What are your expectations of God?

Are you ever tempted to be like Naaman, dismissing the ordinary for the sensational or the simple for the grand? Our merciful God became vulnerable, small and unknown through the incarnation. He lived in a simple family with Mary and Joseph, hidden as a refugee and then a simple life as a tradesman in obscure Nazareth. He met none of our expectations about God and was easily rejected for that reason. Today let’s pray about our expectations of God, asking to grow in faith and trust by seeing His grace and mercy in the ordinary routines of everyday life.
