Naaman’s servants came up to him and spoke to him: “Our father, if the prophet had told you to do something difficult, wouldn’t you have done it? All he said to you was, ‘Wash and become clean.’” - 2 Kings 5:13 (CEB)

When Elisha, the man of God, told Naaman what to do to be healed, Naaman initially refused to do it because it seemed so common. He was expecting an extraordinary healing and almost missed a miracle because the road to the miracle seemed unremarkable.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
