Take These Chances.

Combining these two because I missed a couple days. And because I’m lazy. And because right now I’m reading Matthew and there are like 2 chapters on miracles Jesus performs, so I’m focused on that right now.

"While he was saying these things to them, suddenly a leader of the synagogue came in and knelt before him, saying, “My daughter has just died; but come and lay your hand on her, and she will live.” And Jesus got up and followed him, with his disciples. Then suddenly a woman who had been suffering from hemorrhages for twelve years came up behind him and touched the fringe of his cloak, for she said to herself, “If I only touch his cloak, I will be made well.” Jesus turned, and seeing her he said, “Take heart, daughter; your faith has made you well.” And instantly the woman was made well. When Jesus came to the leader’s house and saw the flute players and the crowd making a commotion, he said, “Go away; for the girl is not dead but sleeping.” And they laughed at him. But when the crowd had been put outside, he went in and took her by the hand, and the girl got up. And the report of this spread throughout that district." - Matthew 9:18-26

They laughed at him. People had the audacity to laugh at Jesus. It’s such a small act, but for me to read that today is astounding. Sometimes we forget the small trials Jesus endured that are exactly the same things we go through today. He has experienced and is aware of even our smallest sufferings.
