Scripture for Sunday January 31

Mark 5:21-43

Jesus had time for both the leader of the synagogue and an unnamed woman who had no place in society. He delayed on his way to Jairus’ house to talk to the woman, but he also didn’t let that delay keep him from healing Jairus’ daughter, even though she had died in the meantime.

Jesus also required the same from both Jairus and the woman – faith. Faith brought both of them to Jesus, falling at his feet. Faith enabled the woman to dare to touch Jesus despite all social rules to the contrary. Faith enabled Jairus to continue on with Jesus even after receiving the news of his daughter’s death.
