Mark 1:40-45

The man with leprosy humbly approaches Jesus and begs him to cure him. Jesus responds with words and a touch that heals. He knows that the man must show himself to the priest for the Mosaic cleansing ritual but warns him to say nothing about the circumstances of the healing. The man does not understand the implications of Jesus’ warning. He reports the news far and wide about the wondrous thing that has happened to him.

It would be so difficult for me to keep news like this quiet. This man had no idea that his public excitement would threaten you and your ministry. It is a lesson in listening to you, Lord, and trusting your direction in all things.
