2 Kings 5:13-14 – But [Naaman’s] servants approached him and said to him, “Father, if the prophet had commanded you to do something difficult, would you not have done it? How much more, when all he said to you was, ‘Wash, and be clean’?” So he went down and immersed himself seven times in the Jordan, according to the word of the man of God; his flesh was restored like the flesh of a young boy, and he was clean.
Once again, sound advice is given to Naaman not by professionals but by concerned lay people, in this case Naaman’s servants. At Church Health Center we are currently training 35 Congregational Health Promoters to be reliable and helpful conduits of health and wellness information to the members of their congregations.
Prayer: Loving God, help us understand how we might be better resources to help and advise your children. AMEN.
