Jesus did not let him, but said, "Go home to your own people and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you."
When something good happens in your life, do you keep it to yourself, or do you give a celebratory shout-out to family and friends?
If you are like me, you want to share your joy with others.
That's one aspect of being on Facebook that I love - reading posts from people who have news just too good NOT to be announced.
A pregnancy. New job. Vacation. Promotion. Engagement. New home. A puppy. An award. An unexpected gift. A book published.
Good news on top of good news!
Shouted from the mountain top to lift up those in the valley.
Brightening a cloudy day.
Dancing like scintillating sunbeams on the lake of our hearts.
Wants telling. Needs telling. Demands telling.
Spreads joy and love and laughter.
In a world which can be so dark at times. And, cold.
And, unforgiving . . .
But, the good news of the one is rejoiced in by the many.
And, through its sharing, all are blessed.
Are you sharing your good news? Are you telling others how the Lord has shown His mercy and favor toward you?
Will you pray with me?
Thank you, Father, for giving us the greatest and grandest good news of salvation through Your Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. May we never think twice about sharing the gospel with others. Amen.
