1 Chronicles 7; Acts 10:34–43
Hezekiah became sick and was at the point of death. He prayed to the Lord, and he answered him and gave him a sign. But Hezekiah did not respond according to the benefit done to him for his heart was proud. 2 Chronicles 32:24–25
Jesus said to the one who had been healed, “Go home to your friends, and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and what mercy he has shown you.” Mark 5:19
Merciful God, please forgive us for our foolish pride that often blinds us to the blessings you have provided for us. Make us to be faithful witnesses of your love and mercy for all of humankind. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
