Thursday, 16th Jan., 2014: Inspirations from Today’s Gospel (Mk. 1:40-45)

The leper in the Gospel reading believed he could be healed and so approached Jesus with faith. He may have entertained some initial fears going to Jesus because the Law prohibits them from appearing in public. But he was courageous to take the bold step of approaching Christ and at the end of the day, his story never remained the same. He thought within himself “I can be healed” and thought of Christ “He can heal me” and his optimism brought him healing.

Today, you may be confronted with several challenges. What is your disposition towards them? Are you always optimistic? Do you explore every opportunity set before you or do you conclude “this may not work out well”. Never be pessimistic in life. Let the Gospel reading inspire you to be optimistic and always try to take the required bold step. It could be going back to studies, it could be abandoning a relationship which is not beneficial to you, it could be making a request for help, etc. It is better to fail than never to attempt a solution. You might be lucky. May Jesus always give you the courage to seek that which your heart desires and may you find it today. Good morning and Happy Thursday.
