Lent Day 17

Questioning God

You see the crowd pressing in on you; how can you say – Who touched me?  Mark 5:21-43  It’s quite easy to get swept up in a crowd. If one is the ultra-sensitive type a crowd probably isn’t the place to be because you will get bumped and you are not likely to know who bumped you unless the perpetrator risks apologizing for having invaded your space. In Lent the crowd merely represents the barriers we must sometimes break through. As we become more focused on our commitment, in faith, we must be willing to invade God’s space.
