“It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick.”
How inclusive and compassionate Jesus is in his ministry – even ‘tax collectors and sinners’ are welcomed to follow him. These people represent those whose professions and social status are ‘not respectable’. However, Jesus shows that he has come for all people, without exception, especially looking out for the weak and the vulnerable, the ‘sick’ and the ‘sinner’.
In carrying out the Mission, have you ever questioned yourself whether you are prejudiced against any individuals or groups? Lord Jesus, help us to become more like you in thought, word and deed. Make us always large-hearted as we minister to our brothers and sisters.
