Daily Devotion from the Church Health Center – 2 Kings 5:9-11a, 12

Tuesday, July 2, 2013 – Proper 9/Ordinary 13, Year C

2 Kings 5:9-11a, 12So Naaman came with his horses and chariots, and halted at the entrance of Elisha’s house. Elisha sent a message to him, saying, “Go, wash in the Jordan seven times, and your flesh shall be restored and you shall be clean.” But Naaman became angry and went away, saying, “…Are not Abana and Pharpar, the rivers of Damascus, better than all the rivers of Israel? Could I not wash in them, and be clean?” He turned and went away in a rage.

One problem with the instant availability of information on the internet is that we can often consider our partial knowledge as complete. Naaman didn’t think the prescription offered by Elisha was adequate because of his preconceived notions.

Prayer: God of all understanding, give us discerning minds so that we may know good information from poor information. Amen.
