“Don’t listen to them; just trust me.” ~~Jesus

One day Jesus took a boat ride. A large crowd met him at the seaside when He arrived. One of the religious leaders named Jairus came to where He was because his daughter was sick. When he saw Jesus, he fell to his knees, beside himself as he begged, “My dear daughter is at death’s door. Come and lay hands on her so she will get well and live.”

Jesus decided to go with him, the whole crowd tagging along, pushing and jostling him. While he was still talking, some people came from the leader’s house and told him, “Your daughter is dead. Why bother the Teacher any more?” Imagine how devastated he is now.

Jesus overheard what they were talking about. Jesus knows what to say to get us focused. His message of good news is clear. It is a question of who we will listen to. It is a question of who we will trust.

“Don’t listen to them; just trust me.” ~~Jesus
